Brunnera macrophylla ‘Emerald Mist’


Siberian Bugloss

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.106.290


A remarkably handsome introduction, this forms a mound of large heart-shaped green leaves with a wide banding of silver near the outside edge. Sprays of bright blue Forget-me-not flowers appear in mid to late 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 and remains attractive into late fall. Excellent for the woodland garden. Tolerates more direct sun that most other variegated types of Brunnera, though in hot-summer regions some afternoon shade is recommended to prevent leaf scorch. Found as a tissue culture sport of ‘Jack Frost’ and introduced by Walters Gardens in Michigan. The effect is a bit like the older selection ‘Langtrees’ but with much more obvious silver banding. USPPP, CPBRAF: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
