This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The heart-shaped leaves of this low-growing perennial are so heavily patterned with silver, that only the veins and outer edges have retained their green colouring. Appearing each spring, this foliage is soon accompanied by sprays of small, rich blue flowers. A gorgeous groundcover for a partially shaded border, it can also be used to soften the edges of a pot.

  • Garden care: Cut back to the base of the plant any stems with leaves that revert to plain green. Lift and divide the plant every two or three years in late autumn.
