LoreBrunnera 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.
Average Size at MaturityReaches 12 to 18 in. tall, slowly spreading 12 to 15 in. wide.
Bloom TimeSpring
Design IdeasA 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.
