Siberian Bugloss Growing and Maintenance Tips

Brunnera needs to be grown away from direct sunlight under deciduous trees. Grows best in a fertile, humus-rich, moist, but well-drained soil. Best grown in temperate climates with cooler summers. This cultivar is more prone to leaf scorch than other Brunneras.  It is adviseable to plant in shadier locations.
