Brunnera Silver Heart


SKU: PER16-Brunnera Silver Heart

Heartleaf Alkanet

Brunnera macrophylla 'Silver Heart'

Loose clusters of tiny blue flowers float above large, pure silver leaves lightly veined in green. 

A superb introduction, forming a clump of very thick, heart-shaped leaves that are silver with green edging and veining. Sprays of deep 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.
