When we planted this side by side with the selection and perennial plant of the year for 2012 – ‘Jack Frost’, we noticed two things. Sea Heart held up much better to the het and humidity of the Mid-Atlantic and it flowered bout a week to two weeks early with a lovely two-toned bloom. We also noticed that when you compare the texture of the foliage, Sea Heart feels like an emory board – no kidding, and Jack Frost feels like a thick piece of paper.
That’s what makes this plant so amazingly different. If you’ve always wanted a brunnera in your garden, this brunnera is for you – even if you live somewhere where the summers are hot and humid. It holds up well and keeps going well into fall till a good hard frost takes it out.
