Queen of Hearts Brunnera - August 2022
Last Summer, I added six Brunnera plants to the garden. Three on one side, three on the other. First...I started with a variety called Queen of Hearts. Those were planted on the northside in a little cluster amongst some various hostas. Here's the post showing their initial planting.
They seemed to do just fine last year and appear to have established themselves. Below, you can see how they look today - with about a year of growing and putting down roots:
All are doing well and if you look closely, you'll see some spent flower stalks emerging from the crown. Each of these had some nice blue-ish flowers that bloomed on their tips.
If I'm looking at adding more shade-tolerant perennials to the backyard and I come across even more Brunnera on sale, it is a no-brainer to pick them up. They are simply performing for me.
They also can use a focal plant that sits right in the middle of these three, right?
