As spring gets into its stride, Derry Watkins of Special Plants selects the charming blue flowers of Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost' to light the way to sunnier days.

Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost'
Pretty, little, forget-me-not flowers in April. Beautiful silver leaves netted with green get bigger and bigger as summer goes on. Given enough food and water the leaves can be magnificent, making good ground cover, and long outlast the flowers. They need a rich, deep, humusy soil and an ample supply of water to look their best – but are worth it. B. macrophylla ‘Looking Glass’ is almost the same, but with solid, silver leaves that shimmer in the shade.
