Siberian Bugloss

  • Scientific Name: Brunnera macrophylla

  • Evergreen/Deciduous: Deciduous

Plant Information

Culture: Brunnera grows well in morning sun to full shade, in all but the driest of spots. In hot afternoon sun, it will need moist soil or the leaves will burn, but in the shade occasional water is sufficient. It performs well even in heavy soils and requires very little to look good all season. Maintenance: A very hardy and easy to grow perennial, Brunnera requires only occasional water, cutting back in the fall (it is herbaceous) and deadheading at the end of its bloom time in May. Propagation is best done by division, and only as needed, since older, undivided clumps will have bigger leaves. Brunnera sometimes seeds itself in the garden; remove seedlings for a tidy appearance or leave them for an eye-catching mass planting. Additional qualities: Attracts butterflies, hummingbirds and beneficial insects. Deer resistant. Mildly drought tolerant.

Pest and Disease: Pests and diseases are not generally a concern for Brunnera.
