2012 Perennial of the Year

Jack Frost

A superb introduction, forming a clump of heart-shaped silver leaves, delicately veined with mint green. 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.

Excellent for the woodland garden. 'Jack Frost' handles more direct sun than most other variegated types of Brunnera, though in hot-summer regions some afternoon shade is recommended to prevent leaf scorch.
