King's Ransom is an outstanding Brunnera. Stunning and colorful. The heart-shaped leaves have creamy yellow margins, a frosting overall on the leaves, giving a silver and gold appearance. The margins lighten to a creamy white. Needs a consistently moist soil that is organically rich. Great woodland plant. Bred by Dan Heims and jointly introduced by Terra Nova and Walters Gardens, Inc. A must have plant!
