Silver Wings is from Naylor Creek Nursery in Washington State. Great woodland plant. It can tolerate some sun better than the other varieties, but it's best to grow it in the shade and keep it out of the hot summer afternoon sun to prevent leaf scorch. A gorgeous Brunnera and a wonderful addition to the shade garden. Grow in organic, consistently moist soil.
