Brunnera 'Alexander's Great'

Brunnera macrophylla, Siberian Bugloss

Hardy Perennial

A statement large-leaved foliage plant for borders and large containers. This hardy perennial returns bigger and better each spring producing neat clumps of heavily silver-veined leaves for dramatic effect in the garden. Use Brunnera 'Alexander's Great' as an underplanting to trees and shrubs or add in with your favourite border perennials for a winning mixed display. Sprays of airy sky-blue flowers on wirey stems also appear in spring to create extra seasonal interest. This low maintenance perennial plant thrives in shade but will happily perform in sunny locations too. Use Brunnera 'Alexander's Great' in containers on the patio to add contrast to your favourite seasonal bedding plants. Height: 40cm (16"). Spread: 90cm (36").

Plant bareroot Brunnera plants at the earliest opportunity following delivery in sun, semi shade or dappled shade. Brunnera plants prefer a well drained, moist, fertile soil. On drier soils, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or compost prior to planting and choose a shaded position.

    Lovely plant quick & easy to grow from plugs, one in border, one in a window trough, but what's the difference from Jack Frost?
