A chartreuse foliage Brunnera that holds its color all summer. Steve Lesch found this amazing seedling in his friend Diane's garden. It has been stable and vigorous for years. You will be impressed with how evenly it holds its chartreuse color through the summer. Looks equally good in the shade border or nursery container. Also showy in Brunnera 'Diane's Gold' bloom with its sky blue flowers.
