Common Name: Siberian Bugloss Family: Boraginaceae (The Borage Family)

Brunnera macrophylla 'Alexander's Great'
Zoom In Photo:

This giant Brunnera looks just like the classic 'Jack Frost' except for it's size. It will grow nearly a foot and half tall and two and a half feet wide! It has dramatic silver foliage and the dainty blue forget-me-not flowers that we love from this genus. Discovered by plantsman Alexander Zukeivich in his Belarus garden. This is a plant for a big garden or a big pot!
