Brunnera 'Alexander's Great'
Brunnera 'Alexander's Great'

1 gallon pot

Robust, Dynamic, Brawny, Strapping-all perfectly describe this “king-sized” Brunnera specimen. Large, heavily silvered, heart-shaped leaves can reach 12” x 10”. Artfully designed veining with some green margins provide character all season. A mist of sky blue flowers hover in sprays above the wide clump.


May self seed, but seedlings with plain green leaves can easily be weeded out. Slightly moist, well-drained soil is best. Absolutely stunning! No perennial garden should be without Brunnera.


Compared to 'Jack Frost', 'Alexander's Great' has much larger leaves and a bigger plant size. It fills a container much faster.
