Bleeding Heart is a lovely perennial shade plant. I had to transfer mine from full sun (where our house's previous owner planted it) to shade. In the sun, it withered away by mid-summer. Plant them in the shade!
The largest brunnera we’ve ever seen, ‘Alexander’s Great’ has gigantic leaves that form an impressive mound of outstanding silver-and-green leaves. Plus, in the spring it develops spikes of lovely sky blue blooms that hover over the silver leaves. It prefers rich, slightly moist soil, so be sure to mulch it to keep it happy during times of drought. ‘Alexander’s Great’ also is deer-resistant.
