Brunnera

Siberian Bugloss

Handsome and undemanding, this ground cover forms large, tidy basal clumps of long-petioled, broad foliage, and displays charming, vivid blue flowers that begin blooming in early spring and persist through Memorial Day. Preferring some shade and evenly moist organic-rich soil, Brunnera is at home by water’s edge, en masse in the border, or as a filler between newly planted shrubs.

Brunnera macrophylla ‘Mr. Morse’ (P-2135)

Each 14.75

AVAILABLE MAY 2021

Masterminded by Belgian plant breeder Chris Ghyselen, this Brunnera ‘Inspector Morse’ and Brunnera ‘Betty Bowring’ cross is wildly popular for its flurry of uniquely colored snow-white flowers. Airy branched racemes carry the small pearl-hued blossoms above dashing heart-style leaves bearing intricate silver and green tattoos. Whether in bloom or not, ‘Mr. Morse’s gleaming, easy-care persona can be ensconced alongside blue-blooming Brunnera ‘Jack Frost’ for a classy combination. (PPAF)

Blooms mid-February–June

Size: 12" – 18" high x 12" – 18" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE PRIOR TO PLACING YOUR ORDER!

Due to the unprecedented influx of orders, phone calls and emails that we have been receiving, our small family run business of not quite a dozen people, is sadly behind at this time. The combination of extremely cold weather in January and February, as well as vendor plant shortages and unanticipated delays, are adding to our difficulty of assigning ship dates in a timely fashion. Please know our team is working diligently to catch up. Orders are currently taking up to 5 weeks to review. To be as fair as possible to our valued customers, we are processing orders in the order they were received. We appreciate your patience and hope that you can accept our heartfelt apology for any inconvenience.
