Bold, attractive, heart shaped foliage in spreading clumps 12-18” tall, emerges golden, green by summer, on this perennial Borage; thrives in moist, organic soil (even clay) in bright shade. Purple-blue flowers with white throats March April. Tolerant of dry shade and dense shade; will grow in tough places like under rooty trees. Due to its pugnacious nature, site this carefully.
