Foliage of the cultivars ‘Jack Frost’ and ‘Silver Heart’ is intricately washed with a striking silver, crackle-like finish. Dark green leaves are heavily frosted which allows only the green veining to show through.
From mid to late spring, baby blue, blossoms that resemble forget-me-not are held in clusters over the shimmering foliage that brightens shady areas in borders or woodland settings or as a groundcover. A beautiful addition to the shade garden.
Thrives in humus-rich, well-drained soils. Prefers cool sites with consistent moisture. Remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
