Heart Shaped Leaves in the Shade

Brunnera are a terrific group of plants with heart shaped leaves for the shade. This one, called Looking Glass, has pretty blue flowers and these great silvery leaves. Planting them next to plants with more glaucus coloured leaves of a different shape really makes for a pretty picture. It is about 3-years old now, and each year has increased in size by a few more leaves - so it really isn't a big spreader - but well worthwhile for a charming bit of romance in the garden.
