Silver and Blue in Early Spring Shade
The Brunnera ‘Jack Frost’, ‘Brunnera macrophylla’ PP13859, has frosty silver leaves that offer a brilliant backdrop to the small clusters of bright blue flowers that appear in earliest spring.
It adds hard-to-find color and dramatic texture to the shade garden with its bright silver leaves that are veined in deep green. The foliage is known to resemble cracked porcelain!
It does require full shade in most areas. In the north, morning sun is tolerated and in the south, dense shade is necessary.
This Brunnera is a wonderful perennial to brighten up shady areas and will look great with any shade plant on the market today.
Try a combination of plants with ‘Jack Frost’ such as, hostas, ferns, pulmonarias, and particularly hellebores, which often bloom at the same time!
The silver and white foliage of this Brunnera will lighten the shade and offer superb contrast to the surrounding greens.
It does require consistently moist soil, and it does not need a lot of care, being a sure garden pleaser!
