Siberian Bugloss

A must-have perennial for your shade lineup. Mature leaves are nearly pure metallic silver with a green edge, topped by bright blue, forget-me-not flowers. Thicker substance reportedly helps leaves resist scorch in hot, humid summers. Great in combo pots for spring sales. Introduced by: Plants Nouveau
