Brunnera 'Alexander's Great' is the latest look-alike of Brunnera 'Jack Frost'...this one, a giant version from Belarus (that's part of the former USSR for those who flunked geography) plantsman Alexander Zukeivich, who found it as a seedling in his garden. Brunnera 'Alexander's Great' forms a large, bushel basket-sized 15" tall x 28" wide clump of lovely silver foliage...each fuzzy leaf highlighted by contrasting green veins and a narrow green edge. Clumps of Brunnera 'Alexander's Great' are topped with stalks of small, sky blue flowers in early spring. As with all brunneras, average to slightly moist, well-drained soils are best. You'll be sure to garner quite a bit of attention from garden visitors with a well-grown clump of the deciduous Brunnera 'Alexander's Great' in your garden.
