2012 Jack Frost Brunnera
Botanical Name: Brunnera 'Jack Frost'
Brunnera is locally called the perennial Forget-me-not for its true blue wispy flowers that appear in mid-Spring, but it has none of the selfseeding or mildew issues common with its namesake. Brunnera forms a clump of frosty silvery leaves similar to a hosta, and performs well in light to full shade with a preference for moist, well drained soil. The crinkled coarse leaves make it especially useful where slugs are a problem.
