What is Brunnera?

Brunnera, also known as Siberian bugloss or Brunnera macrophylla, is a stunning plant with glossy and often frosty-looking foliage that thrives in shady gardens.

When to plant

You can plant brunnera anytime from mid-fall through the early spring when the ground is not frozen.

Where to plant

Brunnera needs shady, continually moist, well-draining soil with a pH of 5.5 to 7, but it can tolerate clay soil with some added compost or other organic matter.

How to plant brunnera plants

If you are planting in groups, space plants one to two feet apart. They will slowly spread and fill the area for a beautiful and practical ground cover.

Caring for brunnera plants

Brunnera is a low-maintenance plant, and once established, the only care it needs is keeping the soil moist but not soggy.
