Product Description

 

A superb specimen perennial, forming a clump of heart-shaped leaves boldly splashed with creamy-white and green, the edges later turning ivory and finally soft yellow. Sprays of bright blue Forget-me-not flowers appear in mid to late spring. This is a choice collector’s plant, much in demand, but with limited supply. Excellent for the woodland garden. Keep out of direct sun, as the white leaf edges will scorch easily. Gentler colouring than Brunnera “Dawson’s White” & easier to grow well, but needs partial shade & retentive soil.Looks wonderful throughout the year.
