Forget-Me-Nots, Brunnera

 Forget-me-nots sometimes grow a pink or white sport.  The cluster to the right is on an all pink plant but the blue cluster on a different plant has just a single pink flower.

 The forget-me-nots bloom at the same time as the brunnera (Siberian bugloss) and the blooms are very similar.  The plant on the left is a forget-me-not, which is a biennial, while the variegated brunnera on the right is a perennial that grows into a nice clump as the season progresses.

 The plain leaf  brunnera makes a nice companion to the variegated one.

A mix of native ( trilliums, yellow violet, white violet, purple violet) and nursery plants - variegated brunnera, plain brunnera, epimedium.
