Soil: fertile, humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil

A pretty groundcover plant for the front of a border or for moist, shady areas under the canopy of deciduous trees. Large, mid-green, heart-shaped leaves edged with cream appear in early spring, followed by sprays of tiny, bright blue flowers like forget-me-nots. For the best variegation, a sheltered, shady site is essential. Although it prefers moist conditioins, brunnera will tolerate dry soil once established. Garden care: Cut back to the base of the plant any stems with leaves that revert to plain green. Lift and divide the plant every two or three years in late autumn.
