Garden Plant: Brunnera Variegata
Product Description: Brunnera Variegata
Brunnera Variegate, Brunnera ‘ Variegate’, has heart shaped leaves that are edged in creamy white for a dramatic contrast in the shade garden.
Tiny, baby blue flowers dance above the foliage in the spring and make excellent cut flowers.
‘ Variegate’ provides long lasting interest from spring through fall.
Variegate’s green and creamy-white will add light to darker areas of the shade garden making it a ‘must have’ for garden plans or garden designs for the perennial shade garden.
Brunnera is a woodland plant that should be grown in full shade, but in the north, morning sun is tolerated, and in the south, dense shade is necessary.
It will grow the fastest and strongest in rich soil, and it does not need a lot of care once established.
Cut back the old foliage in the spring rather than in the fall.
Tolerant of drought and left alone by deer, it defines “low maintenance” in the shade garden.
