Perennial

Brunnera macrophylla 'Sterling Silver'

Siberian Bugloss

Plant Type: Perennial
Exposure: Morning Sun / Afternoon Shade  Shade Tolerant  
MORNING sun/AFTERNOON shade to FULL shade

Sterling Silver Brunnera emerges in spring with large heart-shaped, variegated leaves that provide much-desired brightness in the shade garden. Sprays of tiny baby blue, forget-me-not type flowers float above the sturdy, heat-tolerant foliage.

Brunneras are classic perennials that are treasured for their shade tolerance and lovely blooms. They make a fantastic groundcover, though the variegated forms may be slower to spread than the species. Try growing them in containers too so they will be close at hand when you want to snip a few blooms for a spring bouquet.
