Brunnera is an ideal plant to choose if you're looking for something a little more unusual for the spring garden. Throughout April and May, 'Jack Frost' is covered with lots of small, bright blue flowers which look rather like forget-me-nots. These are complemented by the beautiful heart-shaped foliage which is a pale silver-grey with pronounced dark green veins. To get the best results, plant it in a moisture-retentive, humus-rich soil, where it will form lush attractive ground cover. It looks particularly striking planted in drifts in the woodland garden.
