Brunnera Alexanders Great

I have a couple of young plants which are quite spindly but now have the secondary leaves. As they are still quite small, could you give me any tips for care over the colder months? I am concerned because they are young, but they may well be more robust than they seem!

Many thanks

The recommendation is to just let the leaves die down for winter protection of these leafy perennials.

Since you mention they are small with not much structure, adding 4 to 5 inches of organic mulching material will help.
Leaves will work for this.

Foliage

Is Brunnera foliage attractive after flowering? Will I need to plan surrounding foliage?

Brunnera (Jack Frost)

Should Brunnera (Jack Frost) be cut back in fall? Should I cut it back before frost?

ANSWERS

You can trim away any ragged parts of the plant in fall.
Winter mulch is recommended. Cutting the plant back in the spring is better as leaving the leaves on to protect the crown through winter will give better results.
