Brunnera

Common Name: Heartleaf Alkanet

Beautiful woodland plant, prefering moist soils and plenty of humus. If the soil becomes too dry, the foliage easily crinkles and dies. Attractive forget-me-not type flowers bloom late spring into early summer. Use only in areas where adequate moisture is supplied.

Growing & Maintenance Tips

Dormancy required for growth, moist well-drained soil, grow under 35% shade cloth in summer months.
