Go Back Brunnera Myosotidiflora

Brunnera macrophylla 'Myosotidiflora'
Deer Resistant Icon

Plant Type: Perennials

Their delicate flowers are like Forget-Me-Nots, and add small splashes of blue to the cool shade while their spreading, deep green, heart-shaped leaves add texture and fullness. Best in moist shady locations such as woodland gardens, along stream banks or borders, but tolerates drier soils. Excellent for the shady city garden.

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Brunnera is a woodland plant that should be grown in full shade and consistently moist soil in southern regions. In the north, morning sun is acceptable as long as the soil remains moist. They will grow the fastest and strongest in rich soil. Little care is needed once Brunnera is established. Cut back the old foliage in the spring rather than in the fall; it will help to protect the crown during the winter. A winter mulch is also recommended.
