  • Lovely accent plant

    The Brunnera is a lovely accent plant that lends soft silver/white hues to a mostly green garden. Doing well under dwarf magnolia tree along with annuals and grasses. Quality is excellent; plants thriving with some neglect..

    This is the second Sterling Silver Brunera I have bought, and in my opinion, it will probably take three--four years to haver a significant clump. But it is s very nice, distinguished looking plant.
