Brunnera macrophylla 'Looking Glass'
[Heartleaf Brunera]
Size (ships bareroot) - Jumbo $9.95
Height Light
12 - 18 in. Shade Spring Blue 4 - 8

Silver jewels for the shade! Standing an impressive 12-15 inches tall, 'Looking Glass' displays leaves with an all-over sterling silver patina. This solid silver coating is developed as the large, heart-shaped leaves age, by early summer. The leaves tend to curl under, adding a softness to its mounded form. Springtime brings clusters of tiny, Wedgewood blue, forget-me-not type flowers which naturally float above the young foliage that is silver with green veins. Brunneras are classic perennials that are treasured for their shade tolerance and lovely blooms. They make a fantastic groundcover, though the variegated forms may be slower to spread than the species. Try growing them in containers too so they will be close at hand when you want to snip a few blooms for a spring bouquet.

Care: Moisture loving, woodland plant that works well as a ground cover. Moist humus-rich soil is preferred. Let the old leaves in place through the winter to help protect the crown. Tip for southern growers and gardeners: 'Jack Frost' tolerates heat much better than the older brunnera cultivars.
