Brunnera macrophylla

Brunnera, Anchusa myosotidiflora

Their delicate flowers are like Forget-Me-Nots, and add small splashes of blue to the cool shade while their spreading, deep green, heart-shaped leaves add texture and fullness. Best in moist shady locations such as woodland gardens, along stream banks or borders, but tolerates drier soils. Excellent for the shady city garden. Self-sows. Difficult to start by seed. Divide in fall.
