I live in suburban Chicago, IL and have had success growing this variety. It is a lovely addition to the shade garden; its silvery leaves provide a bright aspect to the area. The blue flowers are cheerful, but not very visible from a distance. It is relatively slow to multiply.

This plant is a sport of Jack Frost. Leaves are light green and change as the season progresses to a lovely silvery shade. Flowers are blue and appear in mid to late spring.
