Having been amused by James (Lost in the Landscape’s) rare lavender flowered Californian coffeeberry I thought I would share my Brunnera hyacinthoides.  Is it a new species combining the large and decorative leaves of the Brunnera with the attractive and very English flowers of the Bluebell?  A winning combination I think.

I am hopeless with names so had to ask my twitter friends for a clue as to what the leaf might be off.  Brunnera they said.  Arh but what Brunnera?  I thought it might be Brunnera macrophylla ‘Jack Frost’ as the name rings a bell but looking at images on google I am not convinced and think it might actually be Brunnera macrophylla ‘Dawnsons White’.  Either way it is a lovely plant and I shall be looking to see how I can divide it.

Oh and these are what the flowers really look like!!
