Siberian Bugloss, Heartleaf Bugloss, False Forget-Me-Not
The spring blooming Siberian Bugloss (Brunnera macrophylla) is closely related to the Forget-Me-Nots. From this member of the borage family blue and white flowering cultivars as well as some with coloured leaves are available.
Part shade to shade. If the ground is evenly moist, a little bit of morning or evening sun is welcome. Varieties with thick leaves tolerate more sun than the thin-leaved ones. But too much sunlight can scorch the leaves.
Siberian Bugloss grows good under trees and shrubs.
Brunnera macrophylla prefers rich in humus to sandy-clayey soil.
The soil should be evenly moist but not soggy.
