Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Brunnera is a woodland plant that should be grown in full shade and consistently moist soil. In the north, morning sun is acceptable as long as the soil remains moist. They will grow the fastest and strongest in rich soil. Little care is needed once Brunnera is established.
