Brunnera

imageBrunner Jack Frost large heart-shaped leaves with a silver coating to sparkle that shady area. The Perennial Plant Association’s 2012 perennial plant of the year.

They like good  moist soil, mulch will help. You could incorporate compost from your compost bin as well. Mines are under willow trees so you know there isn’t much free water. their ok just smaller than normal if in richer ground. I also supplement water from my rain barrels. I also have epimedium  and tiarellas around mine for a different leaf textures and contrasting colors.

Enjoy!
