Who can dispute the claim that this is one of the most spectacular deer resistant perennials for temperate gardens? The heart-shaped medium green leaves are bordered with a very wide creamy-white stripe. As temperatures rise, the color of the edge changes to cream, then pale yellow, giving it more vigor than B. m. 'Variegata'. Although a number of plants have been incorrectly offered under this name, this is the true item. In spring, the plant is smothered in tiny pure blue flowers. Keep this plant moist and out of direct sun!
