I can’t say enough about the beautiful Brunnera macrophylla ‘Jack Frost’, which is now in its third season in my garden. And I know I should have waited before snapping photos since the plant is still growing, but I just couldn’t help myself. I had to share it with you, so that maybe you can discover it as well if you haven’t already.
Even without flowers, it is a stunning plant with its heart-shaped, delicately veined leaves. It’s a very easy to grow perennial, and a perfect choice for those shady areas.
