CARE
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.
HISTORY
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.
