'Alexander's Great' has finally met its match. 'Alexandria' is the perfect companion to our favorite Siberian Brunnera. Alexandria features brilliant mirror-silver leaves with the classic 'Alexander's Great' size and vigor. Tiny clouds of sky-blue flowers in the spring float above the foliage as it emerges.
