Plant Description

Siberian bugloss is a very slowly spreading perennial that is grown primarily for its attractive foliage. ‘Jack Frost’, which is the Perennial Plant Association Perennial of the Year for 2012, has drop-dead gorgeous, silver and green heart shaped leaves that form 1 1/2 foot clumps. In addition, in the spring, there are tiny, light blue, forget-me-not flowers on delicate 18” stems. The effect is beautiful and soft. Grow ‘Jack Frost’ in evenly moist, neutral soil in mostly shade where it will spread slowly and brighten a dark spot. Bleeding hearts, maidenhair ferns, shooting stars, and ‘Misty Blue’ doll’s eyes would be excellent companions.
