Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost' False forget-me-not

Posted: 07 March 2013
Overall: I have several of these now, in various leaf colour varieties and think they are wonderful. However, you should not call them forgetmenots, the flower does look similar but it is a totally different group of plants. The don't have the potential to be come a nuisance in the way that myosotis can do. Brunneras appear to be quite hardy, I had two the year of the very long hard winter, 2010-11, and they both survived, rather to my surprise. They looks good for most of the year too, always a bonus, especially with a flowering plant.

Centaurea montana Mountain cornflower

Overall: My friend grow them on her allotment, not only because they look lovely, which they do, but they also encourage lots of pollinators for other crops. Such a glorious shade of blue.
