Growing and Maintenance Tips

Brunnera is an easy care undemanding perennial that thrives in rich well drained garden soil in partial shade. It is not a fan of hot dry conditions but will take morning or late afternoon sun as long as the soil stays evenly moist. It seldom needs dividing. To keep the plant looking attractive shear the spent flower heads after flowering.
