Jack of Diamonds arrived safely, I bought three, and I planted within one week of their arrival. Kept them watered and they are doing great! I can't wait to see how they make it through the winter up here, zone 4-5, and if they produce any of those little blue flowers. Even without the flowers, the foliage is gorgeous.

A wonderful choice for the shade garden with its beautiful large leaves and bright blue forgot-me-not-like flowers. Flowers appear in the spring and add to the exquisite foliage. The leaves have a stunning heavy silver overlay with rich, green wide veining and reach a size of 9" - 10". Makes a great statement!

Homeowner Growing Tips: An easy-care plant. Prefers shade & rich, moist soil. Some morning sun is fine in northern climates, if soil does not dry out. To protect the crown of the plant over winter, apply a mulch, and wait until the spring to cut back the leaves. Division only required every 6-10 years.
