Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack of Diamonds' is a giant version of 'Jack Frost' with leaves reaching 10 inches wide!
Brunneras are closely related to forget-me-nots (Myosoitis) and Anchusa. They have beautiful heart-shaped leaves held in an attractive mound topped with cute forget-me-not-like blue flowers in spring. ‘Jack Frost’ is one of the best garden plants to be introduced to horticulture in a very long time and 'Jack of Diamonds' is the huge-leaved version. It has boldly silver-frosted, heart-shaped leaves which set off the blue flowers to perfection.
