Brunnera macrophylla Jack Frost is a striking and unusual hardy perennial. Its expansive, heart-shaped leaves boast an intricate network of green veins which are starkly at odds with its fragile, finely stemmed bright blue blooms. It is this dramatic contrast which has secured Jack Frost's status as a favourite of the British gardener. Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit unique this perennial is not only attractive but also reliable with a strong resistance to pests, making it the perfect plant and flowering from April to May, it reaches a mature height of 40cm. Sure to make an impact within any garden bedding or the front of borders, they will thrive in moist soil in shaded areas. 9cm pot plants are supplied.
