Siberian bugloss

Brunnera macrophylla (Siberian bugloss) has a beautiful pairing of delicate blue flowers and accompanying heart shaped foliage.

This species tends to grow in clumps and somewhat slowly, although it lives for a long time. The flowers are similar to those of forget-me-nots and therefore it is also known as the false forget-me-not.
