(Heartleaf Brunnera) Brunnera 'Jack Frost' is one of the most outstanding foliage perennials. The leaves are frosty silver with fresh green veining, creating a crackling appearance. The heart-shaped leaves shimmer in the light and will brighten any shady area of your landscape. Plant in full to part shade, keep soil moist, and 'Jack Frost' will grow 12 to 15 inches tall and wide. For southern locations, 'Jack Frost' should be planted in full shade. This is a great groundcover option or container plant, thriving in rich soil. As an added bonus in the spring, soft blue forget-me-not flowers float above the stunning foliage. 'Jack Frost' is hardy for zones 3 through 8. In the spring, cut back the old foliage.
