For-get-me-not



Bruneara Jack Frost

Jack Frost

 I absolutely love the perennial forget me not Brunnera. The big oval heart shaped leaves, a little similar in size and shape to the reliable spring lungwort’s hairy leaves, edge the borders in my shady beds. I feel the dramatic frosty silver veining that decorates the leaves of my favourite varieties Jack Frost and creamy leaf margins of Hadspen Cream, justifies its planting even before the mass of blue. These are excellent easy ground cover plants in shade or dappled shade as are the Pulmonaria (Lungwort).
