Brunnera macrophylla 'Variegata'
|Description||Bold white and light green bordered leaves provide a dramatic background for the vivid, azure-blue, forget-me-not flowers in spring. The lovely variegated foliage brightens shady areas in borders or woodland settings and works well as a groundcover. An herbaceous perennial.|
|Light||Filtered sun, Full shade, Partial shade|
|Watering||Keep soil consistently moist.|
|Mature Size||Reaches 12 to 18 in. tall, slowly spreading 12 to 15 in. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Ground Cover, Accent, Edging|
|Design Ideas||A delicate beauty for shaded spaces beneath tree groves and copses. Bright filler for shaded exposures in foundation planting. Solves problems by covering weed producing ground beneath large shrubs that have lost their skirt foliage. Particularly lovely in speckled shade beneath white lattice arbors and structures. Casual appearance resembles wildflowers in wild gardens and casual habitat plantings.|
|Companion Plants||Coral Bells (Heuchera); Lungwort (Pulmonaria); Hosta (Hosta); Ligularia (Ligularia); Bleeding Heart (Dicentra)|
|Care||Thrives in cool sites with humus-rich, moist, well-drained soils. Shelter from harsh sun exposures. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish root system; once established, water regularly to maintain evenly moist soil. For a tidy appearance, remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge in spring.|
|Lore||Brunnera is so like traditional forget-me-not that it once shared the same genus, Myosotis. It has jumped continents to naturalize in some parts of North America.|
