Gardeners' Notes:

It would appear the previous entry relates more to the experience with a nursery, rather than with this plant. I have recently purchased 7 of these, and they are absolutely beautiful, a blue-green top surface and a silver under surface, with a softly prostrate growth habit. It sets off pulmonaria, brunnera, and the newer dwarf buddleia very nicely.

I live in georgia,12 out of 75 plants lived. Bought 12 inch tall plants and put them straight in the ground. I should have grown them in pots for the first year, I think more of them would have lived. Or it may be the supplier(hollow creek-dont buy from them). Maybe you will have better luck.
