Brunneras are classic perennials that are treasured for their shade tolerance and lovely blooms. They make a fantastic groundcover when planted en masse, though the variegated forms may be slower growers than the species. Try snipping a few blooms for a spring bouquet!
Brunnera is a woodland plant that should be grown in full shade and consistently moist soil in southern regions. In the north, morning sun is acceptable as long as the soil remains moist. They will grow the fastest and strongest in rich soil. Little care is needed once Brunnera is established. Cut back the old foliage in the spring rather than in the fall; it will help to protect the crown during the winter. A winter mulch is also recommended.
