Quick Overview:

Rhizomatous, clump-forming perennial that is primarily grown for its attractive basal foliage. ‘Jack Frost’ leaves are a distinctive silvery white with green primary and secondary veins and a thin green rim around the leaf edges. The basal foliage forms a hosta-like mound of heart-shaped leaves (3-5″ wide) which remain attractive throughout the growing season. Smaller stem leaves are elliptic. Tiny, forget-me-not-like flowers (light blue with yellow centers) rise above the foliage on slender stems to 18″ tall in spring.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in part shade. Intolerant of dry soils. Prefers consistently moist, organically rich soils in shady areas. Clumps slowly spread by both creeping rhizomes to form thick ground covers.
