With silvery heart-shaped leaves sprays of blue, forget-me-not flowers in Spring, Brunnera macrophylla is a charming addition to shade and part shade gardens.
Also called "Bugloss", this ground cover spreads by rhizomes and forms a lush, shimmering carpet. Brunnera macrophylla thrives in moist, organic-rich soils. It is a forgiving perennial that is resistant to deer, rabbits, and most diseases. It can be deadheaded after blooming to prevent self-sowing.
Plant Brunnera macrophylla Bugloss in woodland gardens, borders, and alongside backyard ponds.
