Brunnera ‘Alexander’s Great’
After viewing the photo from Belarus of Alexander holding his arms around this big Brunnera, we were sold! These gigantic plants have heavily silvered leaves and make a dramatic statement in the landscape or use as a dynamic specimen in a container. Lovely spiraled leaf-bases. This is not a hybrid of Brunnera 'Jack Frost'.
