Brunnera Sea Heart


SKU: PER16-Brunnera Sea Heart

Heartleaf Alkanet

Brunnera macrophylla 'Sea Heart'

Blooms open white and blue, gradually maturing to lavender-purple. When in full flower, all 3 colors are present at once, creating a seldom-seen flush of bright color for the shade.

A superb introduction, forming a clump of very thick, heart-shaped leaves that are green-on-silver with pronounced veining. Sprays of two-tone pink and blue Forget-me-not flowers appear in spring. This is a choice collector?s plant, but an easy-to-grow perennial that performs well in all but the driest of shady conditions. Excellent for the woodland garden. Provided there is sufficient moisture, plants can tolerate full sun; as the leaves are so thick, little or no scorching occurs. Bred by Spitsbergen-Willemsen of the Netherlands.
