An outstanding performer in the shade bed, this hardworking plant really holds its own! The flowers are bright blue, the foliage is lovely against the other shade plants, and it's very low maintenance. No wonder it's so pricey at the nurseries!

LOVE THIS PLANT! This plant in our heavy clay alkaline soil is growing well. I have it planted on the east side of the house where it receives morning sun and afternoon shade. The silver leaves increase in size as the season progresses lighting up the shade garden. The forget-me-not type flowers are a true blue color sitting high above the silver foliage. Absolutely breathtaking. I give it no special care except to remove a few leaves in late summer.
Was not a good performer in my shade garden. Moved once to a new location thinking it might be happier but it still did not do well. Lost plant after third season.
I enjoy the brunnera macrophylla perennials so much I got this one because of the unusual leaves. It really sets off a flower bed. It also does well in shady and moist areas.
