Brunnera ‘Silver Charm’
This Brunnera from Alexander Zuikevich of Belarus charmed us with its lovely heart-shaped leaves and dense compact habit. It's nicely silvered, and has a more vigorous growth rate than 'Jack Frost', which will please the growers. The lovely sprays of blue flowers are heaviest in the spring.
