Brunnera - Emerald Mist
Silver in the Shade
Brunnera Emerald Mist, Brunnera 'Emerald Mist' PPAF, is an improved version of Brunnera 'Langtrees' with more pronounced silver spots that connect to form a silver collar around the perimeter of the leaf.
The heart shaped leaves also have a light silver dusting over the entire leaf surface, which gives it a unique metallic look.
The baby blue forget-me-not flowers accent the showy foliage in the spring. 'Emerald Mist' PPAF is an outstanding deer resistant perennial for the shade garden!
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 that is consistently moist, and it does not need a lot of care once established.
Cut back the old foliage of 'Emerald Mist' in the spring rather than in the fall. It will become a sure garden pleaser!
