2012 Perennial Plant of the Year™

Apr 11 2012

 

Our #bloomoftheday on twitter today is: Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost'.  It also happens to be the 2012 Perennial Plant of the Year™ as decided by the Perennial Plant Association.  It is a wonderful shade perennial grown for its delicate, long-lasting, blue forget-me-not like flowers, as well as, its silvery-green heart-shaped leaves.  This shade-lover grows 45cm high and spreads 45cm.  Try planting Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost' among Hosta and Ferns for a great effect.

For a list of 'Perennial Plants of the Year™' from 1990 to present day read our past blog post, 'Plant Picks of 2011: Part 2 - Thread-leaf Blue Star'.
