Brunnera macrophylla Hadspen Cream is a clump forming perennial with delicate blue flowers which appear in spring time. The leaves are large and heart shaped with green centres and large, irregular, cream edges, often producing a mottled effect. Quite a striking perennial when used to underplant roses or shrubs, it also works quite well with hostas and ferns.
Brunneras need to be grown away from direct sunlight – the dappled shade under deciduous trees and shrubs is ideal. In the wild it grows in the forests of the Causcasus, thriving in the cool, damp conditions. Although they prefer moist soil, once established they can tolerate periods of drought. Lamprocapnos spectabilis Alba is an excellent companion plant as they enjoy the same conditions and the white flowers of the Lamprocapnos contrast beautifully with the flowers and foliage of Brunneras.
