My favourite...

Dimpled: 'Jack Frost' A touch of spring Frost and you'll forget it not 6 Just coming into its prime (though it looks superb for months) is a spring, woodland plant that just about everyone could grow.

With large, heart-shaped silver leaves, Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost' makes bold clumps that shine out from the shady places they like to grow. To accompany the splendid foliage there are sprays of tiny bright cerulean blue flowers.

They are like airy forget-me-nots. Unsurprisingly, the two are related - members of the borage family, with the same dimpled centre shared by many borages and giving one of them its common name: navelwort.
