(Under construction)
A nice clump of Brunner can really shine in a shade garden. Who can dislike the blue flower varieties, the delicate patterns on their leaves, and the exquisite and neat form of their foliage? They are not pests like their blue flower relative Forget-Me-Not in my garden. In my area, the hot and dry summer often makes my Brunneras look miserable. Those in relatively moist locations fare better. They can take more sun if sufficient moisture is provided, but some varieties appear to take dry shade better than others.

Brunnera macrophylla ‘Looking Glass’

I don’t particularly like the smooth silvery foliage without delicate pattern as in ‘Jack Frost’

Brunnera macrophylla ‘Diane’s Gold’

It has an elegant refined leaf form and lime gold colour foliage

Brunnera macrophylla ‘Emerald Mist’

Brunnera macrophylla ‘Hadspen Cream’

The foliage seems more compact and smaller, and has a nice cream colour that goes well with other plant.

Brunnera macrophylla ‘Jack Frost’

The bright silvery pattern stands out elegantly in the shade.

Brunnera macrophylla ‘Kings Ransom’

The subtle pale cream colour on its foliage gives it a more warm and pleasant look in the shade.

Brunnera macrophylla ‘Variegata’

I like the broad stroke white variegation.
