Mystery plants are often what I grow in my home garden. I am horrible at tagging plants and remembering what they are. Luckily, with some help from Facebook, I discovered a new plant. In today’s post I share the Brunnera macrophylla Jack FrostSiberian Bugloss, False Forget Me Not growing in my Spring Garden.
The Brunnera Mac… Jack Frost Siberian Bugloss Video
With a name like Brunnera macrophylla Jack FrostSiberian Bugloss, it’s imaginable the name would be a forgotten. The only reason I can remember the name is because of the funny audio playback on my pronounce app to share in the video.
This video is part of my YouTube channel show at Creative Living with Bren Haas.
One of the things I love about this plant is it is spreading wide enough to cover the tulips that are dying back this spring. This is a great strategy to use in your home garden. Plant the Brunnera macrophylla close to the bulbs like tulips so they cover the ugly dying foliage. You don’t want to cut back those spring bulbs so they grow energy in the bulb for next year.
