In spring, a cloud of tiny blue flowers hovers above brunnera's mound of fuzzy heart-shape leaves. The plant prefers partial shade but can grow in full sun in cool climates provided it receives adequate moisture. Variegated forms need more shade; in full sun they're likely to scorch. It is sometimes called Siberian bugloss.

Primroses appreciate partial shade and moist soil, just like brunnera. Choose bright yellow or orange varieties to make the blue of brunnera flowers pop. Or for a more subtle effect, team pink or lavender primroses with silver variegated brunnera.
