Product Details

Product Details

Discovered in Belarus, this impressive variety sports the characteristic silvery foliage of other Brunneras but on plants with broad, nearly shrub-like proportions. An exciting addition for shady borders and woodland gardens. PP 25,789

Brunnera is most at home in woodlands or along a shady stream bed, where it will form a lush understory of quiet beauty. One of its common names, False Forget-me-not, refers to the intense azure flowers.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

Growing guide

Pronunciation: brun'er-ruh   

Heart-shaped, softly hairy leaves beautifully set off sprays of sparkling blue Forget-me-not flowers in spring. This shade lover makes a well-behaved but effective ground cover in evenly moist, well-drained soil. Brunnera is most at home in woodlands or along a shady streambed, where it will form a lush under story of quiet beauty.

Light/Watering: Prefers partial shade or shade; tolerates dry shade but needs moisture in sunny conditions. Variegated forms require moist soil and will scorch in sun.

Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Grow in well-drained soil that is moderately fertile and humus-rich. We do not recommend fertilizing at planting time or during the first growing season.

Pests/Diseases: Tough and relatively trouble-free.

Companions: Daffodils and other woodland plants.

Dividing/Transplanting: Divide in spring; plant crown at soil level.

End-of-Season Care: Keep old foliage over winter to protect crowns. After the ground freezes, apply a loose layer of oak leaves, pine boughs, or straw.

 

Calendar of Care

Early Spring: Gradually remove winter cover. Cut back old foliage; large clumps may be divided.

Summer: Remove any green foliage that appears on variegated forms.
