Brunnera

My Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost' is starting to open.

I have not 'Jack Frost' but the common species is roaming in my woodland! 'Jack Frost' seems to have much better color of the leaves though.

I will try to take some pictures of Brunnera 'Betty Bowering' , 'Hadspen Cream' , 'Variegata' and 'Mrs.Morse' , 'Langtrees' next week.

Here is my 'Jack Frost'

I have another one thats a little smaller because of more shade, i will take a picture of it maybe tomorrow , when sun is shinning.

Ooh, the silver on those leaves is so intense, really brightens up a shady spot.  So far, I haven't gone for any of these as they are so darned expensive, and I already have one very expensive habit... epimediums!  Looking forward to seeing the other cultivars, ones that I'm not familiar with.

So while having a very hard week of work , i have taken new pictures of some Brunnera

First one is Brunnera macrophylla

Next one is Brunnera macrophylla 'Betty Bowering' with very nice white flowers. I like this cultivar.

A cultivar that looses his leafcolor sometimes is Brunnera macrophylla 'Variegata'. I returns to green leaves then :-(

An other cultivar is Brunnera macrophylla 'Langtrees' with some silver dots on the leave

There are some other cultivars like 'Hadspen Cream' ( i hope to take a picture in the future, i forgot it) , 'Looking Glass' (looks a little like a 'Jack Frost' but i prefer 'Jack Frost') and other
