"Brunnera Jack Frost, also known as Chinese Forget-Me-Nots, forms a nice size clump of heart shaped 5-inch wide, beautiful silvery-white leaves which remain attractive all season long in a shady location. As an added attraction, airy light blue forget-me-not flowers rise above the foliage on 18-inch stems in spring. Even better - slugs and snails never touch the beautiful foliage." - Ciscoe Morris
