Gardeners' Notes:

This is a wonderful Brunnera. We've had this plant for 3-4 years and for some reason it doesn't sell as well as the straight species or 'Variegata'. I don't understand why because its variegation is wonderful. Although not as bright as 'Variegata', it has its own unique greenish- yellow variegation. Some of our plants have shown spectacular variegation while others are just ho-hum. Regardless, it still makes a nice addition to the shade garden.
