Name of plant – Brunnera

(Question)

I found this plant in a garden on a street. Please can I have the name of it?
Will it grow in the shade and is it an annual or perennial?

Thanks

(Answer)

The plant you found is a variety of Brunnera macrophylla, commonly called Brunnera or Siberian Bugloss.  From the slight variation on the leaves it would seem to be Brunnera macrophylla “Langtrees”.

Brunnera is a clump forming perennial.  It grows in average well-drained soil in part shade.  While it will grown in sun, in such conditions the leaves may scorch.  Plants may self seed, in optimal conditions.

This plant is a lovely addition to a shady or part shady garden.  Good find!
