Brunnera macrophylla 'Sea Heart'

Brunnera

Brunnera 'Sea Heart' is an improved Jack Frost with larger heart-shaped leaves with more pronounced variegation. Foliage has greater substance and is more sun and heat tolerant. 


Tiny, sky-blue, forget-me-not-like flowers fade to pink or lavender producing a two-tone effect and rise above the foliage on slender stems in spring. Very popular and easy-to-grow, Brunnera performs well in all but the driest of shady conditions. Excellent for the woodland garden. Its hairy leaves give it a bit more resistance to slugs than other plants growing in moist, shady conditions.

Brunnera Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in part shade. Intolerant of dry soils. Prefers consistently moist, organically rich soils in shady areas.
