Brunnera macrophylla 'Silver Wings'
Common Name: Siberian Bugloss Family: Boraginaceae (The Borage Family)
| Zoom In Photo:
This is my favourite brunnera cultivar with regular silver markings throughout the foliage. It isn't as bold as 'Jack Frost' or 'Looking Glass' but there is beauty here related to its slightly more subtle silvering. A good plant for a spot in the shade garden where you want to add folial interest but not the shocking silver WOW of the other cultivars. Blue forget-me-not flowers in spring.
