Brunnera King's Ransom
Brunnera King's Ransom, Brunnera macrophylla 'King's Ransom' PPAF, produces leaves that have a creamy yellow margin with a light "frosting" over the remainder of the leaves, giving the plant a silver and gold appearance.
Dainty blue flowers float above the plant in the spring as the leaf margins lighten to a creamy white.
'King's Ransom' PPAF is jointly introduced by Terra Nova and Walters Gardens, Inc. Its size makes it the perfect choice for combination containers as well as for mass plantings.
Brunnera is a woodland plant that should be grown in full shade, but in the north, morning sun is tolerated, and in the south, dense shade is necessary.
It will grow the fastest and strongest in rich soil, and it does not need a lot of care once established.
Cut back the old foliage in the spring rather than in the fall. Being drought tolerant and left alone by deer, it defines "low maintenance" in the shade garden!
