Brunnera 'Looking Glass'
An all-silver version of 'Jack Frost'. Very showy in the shade garden. Perfect companion to dark green or blue hostas.
Closed for 2012.
'Looking Glass' is a very silvered form of Brunnera, even more silvered than 'Jack Frost'. The wonderful, large, heart-shaped leaves glow in part shade to shade and form good size clumps. Use as an accent, mass, or a ground cover.
Divide when clump begins to deteriorate in the center.
You are purchasing Brunnera 'Looking Glass' as a commercial growers plug. Although smaller than the typical mail-order plant pots, the plants are often healthier and better-rooted. We have had great success planting these directly into our gardens. Within a month or two plants are indistiguishable from those that were transplanted at a larger size. The smaller pot size allows us to offer these designer plants at significantly discounted prices and low shipping rates. Plants will appear similar to the illustration.
We typically ship on Mondays (during the spring it sometimes takes a couple of days or more to get out all of our orders). Please notify us if your weather is approaching freezing or if it will be above 85 degrees. We do not recommend shipping or planting Brunnera 'Looking Glass' in these conditions.
We guarentee that your Brunnera 'Looking Glass' will arrive healthy and thrive in your garden. Please contact us immediately if your Brunnera 'Looking Glass' arrives damaged in shipping or if your plant fails to thrive within 90 days. We will gladly issue a full refund or send a replacement.
