Brunnera will grow best in full shade or early morning sun and will be most vigorous in rich soil. ‘Jack Frost’ will tolerate heavier soils provided they are amended with compost or other organic material. Brunnera has a classic appeal that makes it a wonderful addition to almost any shady site, including shaded rock gardens. The silvery leaves are capable of brightening a dark corner and pulling light into dreary, shaded areas of the landscape. Jack Frost has a slow, spreading growth habit that makes it an excellent choice for shady groundcover.
