Brunnera macrophylla 'Alexander's Great'

Siberian Bugloss
Introduced by Terra Nova Nursery from bred breeder Alexander Zukeivich, (who I imagine is pictured here!) 'Alexander the Great' has GIGANTIC silver-flecked foliage in comparison to 'Jack Frost'. Dainty blue forget me not like flowers are borne in loose sprays in mid spring. We've had this in the garden for 2 seasons now, and have been impressed with it s durability. Plants grow to 15" tall and 28" wide, and are happiest in well drained soil which has adequate moisture during the growing season. Deer resistant too!
