Notes:
Brunneras are closely related to forget-me-nots (Myosoitis) and Anchusa. They have beautiful heart-shaped leaves held in an attractive mound and cute forget-me-not-like blue flowers in spring. 'Jack Frost' is one of the best garden plants to be introduced to horticulture in a very long time. It has boldly silver-frosted, heart-shaped leaves which set off the blue flowers to perfection. Selected by the Perennial Plant Association as Perennial Plant of the Year 2012.
