Brunnera Jack Frost

The foliage of ‘Jack Frost’ is intricately detailed with a crackle-like finish. Though the leaves are dark green, they have a heavily frosted overlay which allows only the green veining to show through, a great ornamental choice for garden edging, shaded borders or as a ground cover.
