'A Brunnera like no other, the Jack Frost Heartleaf is visually stunning with sliver leaves that are veined with a rich, deep green. This beautiful plant adds a touch of dramatic charm to your shade garden and sports bright blue flowers in spring that further enhance its color.

Growing 12" to 15" tall, the Jack Frost is low maintenance. It prefers partial shade and slightly acidic soil but is hardy and can tolerate the occasional cold snap as well as soil that is less fertile. It is a voluminous plant that plumps nicely, so if planting more than one be sure to space them 18" to 24" apart so as not to restrict the plant's dense form.

Other plants in the shade garden such as ferns or hellebores often bloom in tandem with the Jack Frost, making this brunnera a perfect complement to your existing flora. When paired with a Royal Heritage Hellebore the results are amazing as the silver Jack Frost leaves contrast wonderfully with the hellebore blooms. Jack Frost thrives in moist, well-drained soil.

Beautiful even when neglected

I planted one several years ago and am always delighted when I start my spring clean up and see this hardy little plant in bloom. When I said hardy, I mean it. I plant it and it must grow with my great expectations rather that lots of attention.
Very nice

We purchased two of the Jack Frost, we based our decision on the very helpful grow zone chart, and the fact that it would be quite shaded. They plant has not yet flowered, but it looks healthy and is growing. I love the white on the leaves! Another great purchase from Wayside.
superb in the semi-shade garden

Brunnera, if planted in the right place and soil, is a fabulous addition to the shade garden - with a backdrop of tall ferns and in the company of shy Liriope or Pulmonaria.

A Tradition of Distinction

Since its founding in 1920, Wayside Gardens has brought the rarest and highest-quality plants to the garden market. Wayside was founded in 1920 by two acclaimed growers who came together to pursue their shared vision of marketing all high-end plants for the serious garden enthusiast. Originally located in Mentor, Ohio, Wayside Gardens swiftly grew a reputation for the highest-quality plants and the most sophisticated clientele. In 1975, Wayside was purchased by the Park Seed Company, and moved to Hodges, SC.  The company has flourished since then, growing to become an undisputed leader in rare and unique plant growing.

Unparalleled Selection

Wayside's horticulturists travel the world in search of new and unusual plant cultivars and proudly offer the garden industry’s most sophisticated selection of high quality and rare perennial plants, bulbs, trees, shrubs, roses, vines, and indoor plants. Beginning with ties to the Dutch family bulb business in Holland, our horticulturists have developed close relationships with perennial and bulb growers throughout the United States and Europe, providing access to many rare and unique garden treasures. Throughout our history we have had the pleasure of introducing numerous exotic foreign and domestic plant cultivars to the American garden market. The Wayside collection of new and exclusive plant products is so preeminent that the catalog has long been lauded in the industry and is even used as a reference work in horticultural schools.
