Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost' PP13859
Common Name: Heartleaf Brunnera, Siberian Bugloss.
Zones 3 to 8.
Part Shade to Full Shade.
Plants reach 12 to 15 inches tall and 12 to 15 inches wide;
Herbaceous perennial with clumping habit that form thick ground covers.
Growth rate: spread vigorously by both creeping rhizomes and self-seeding.
The leaves of 'Jack Frost' are intricately detailed with a crackle-like finish. Though the leaves are dark green, they have a heavily frosted overlay which allows only the green veining to show through. From mid to late spring, baby blue, forget-me-not type blossoms are held in clusters several inches above the shimmering foliage. 'Jack Frost' tolerates heat better than the older brunnera cultivars.
The gold standard in Brunnera, and a must-have for shade gardens.

Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit 2004
Plantarium Gold Medal 2001
Twenty (20) plants per flat (or tray). Approximate Plug Measurements: 3.25 inches deep x 2.6 inches wide.

This is my second batch of Jack Frost's from Blooming Designs. The first batch, from 2 years ago, is doing so well I had to have more. I love the flowers and the foliage.
Ordered flat of 20 Jack Frost Brunnera plants. Plastic tags arrived first, somewhat concerning that this was perhaps all I was to get, but plants did arrive well packed in a box about a week later. Plants were a bit small, but all were healthy. Have been in the ground about one week. Let's hope all survive! Would have given five stars if communication had been better -- i.e. you will receive plant tags first, followed by the actual plants. Also, noting plant size (2" square pot size for each in multipack of 20) would have been nice as well.
