Description

A classic plant to mix up with your hellebores, pulmonarias and Solomon Seal in a shady spring bed. This plant has large, heart-shaped leaves with dappled silvery variegation and forget-me-not blue flowers, which if seared in boiling water for 20 seconds make good cut flowers. Also excellent for ground cover.

Care Tips

Deadhead after flowering and remove any tatty leaves in early spring. May be divided in spring.
