Alexander’s Great Siberian Bugloss is "king-sized" Brunnera with giant foliage. It can reach up to 1.5 ft tall. The leaves are heart shaped, and silver coloured with contrasting green veins and edges. In the early spring, clusters of adorable, sky-blue flowers appear on branched racemes above the clumps of basal leaves.

‘Alexander’s Great’ was discovered by Alexander Zukeivich and was introduced by Terra Nova Nurseries in 2013. This variety resembles Brunnera ‘Jack Frost’ but the size of Alexander’s Great’ is larger.

Alexander's Great Brunnera should be planted in partial sun or shade, working well in any shade garden, as a border of a woodlot, or as a shady ground-cover. It will suffer in full sun or dry summer months if not kept moist. This plant can spread slowly through rhizomes and self seeding, Remove spent flowers if new plants are not desired.
