Home of the NO SMALL PLANTS!
We are a bona fide nursery where we grow plants. That means we don’t just pop our plants out of a tray and sell you a liner. Our plants are grown on to a bigger size, many times even to a mature plant!
Humble Hen Farm & Nursery
Height: 16-18.0 inches Spread: 28-36.0 inches
Common Name: Brunnera Queen of Hearts
Common Name: Heartleaf Brunnera, Siberian Bugloss
This stunning foliage perennial will be the queen of the shade (and your heart). Compared to its companion plant ‘Jack of Diamonds’, ‘Queen of Hearts’ has more heart-shaped leaves and more pronounced silver overlay with narrower bands of dark green veining. From mid to late spring, baby blue, forget-me-not type blossoms are held in clusters above the foliage.
Brunneras are classic perennials that are treasured for their shade tolerance and lovely blooms. They make a fantastic groundcover, though the variegated forms may be slower to spread than the species. Try growing them in containers too so they will be close at hand when you want to snip a few blooms for a spring bouquet.
Info: Our plants are grown in 5.25 x 5.25 x 5.25 inch pots and develop large root systems. These are not a small liner but a plant you can put right into your garden. That means you will get a bigger plant right away compared to a starter plant. We guarantee you will get a true to type healthy plant that you will love for years. If you have any problems or questions we are happy to help. During early spring plants may still be breaking dormancy so they may appear smaller than they will be when they fully leaf out. In the fall and winter plant may be completely dormant which means minimal to no leaves. Not to worry thought they will awaken at the proper time in the spring.
Shipping: We do not ship to Hawaii or Alaska due to cost and import restrictions. Plants will be removed from their pots and loose soil removed and the rootball placed in a bag. We are an inspected nursery from the VA Dept of AG.
