A Wide Variety of Amazing Cultivars

Heartleaf Brunnera – Brunnera macrophylla (aka Siberian Bugloss) is an amazing, shade-tolerant perennial that has become deservingly popular in New England.  We highly recommend using one or many (in combination) of the available cultivars (listed below) to put some color in your shade garden.  This plant is perfect for garden edges, and couples well with ferns and/or bleeding hearts (if you choose to go with a heart-themed garden).  A contrasting dark chocolate/maroon foliage, which is readily available in Heuchera and Ligularia, looks amazing standing over the shorter Brunnera.  This is a must-have for all New England / Atlantic Canada gardeners, and we dare you to stop at one selection.  Cultivars that are commonly found in most New England garden centers include the following: ‘Jack Frost’; ‘Looking Glass’; ‘Silver Wings’; ‘Variegata’.  Brunnera seem to be the first plants to sell out at local plant sales – the secret is out. 

This serves as the most comprehensive list of Brunnera varieties available online (to date).  Please send comments if a cultivar has been missed.  We are always excited to learn of new cultivars!
