The plant is quite abundant in the forest on the hillside near my house.

Clusters of dainty blue spring flowers on 1 to 2-foot slender stems above handsome heart-shaped leaves.
For best results (if planting more than one of these plants), space each one at least a foot apart from each other.
Landscape uses:
Plant Siberian bugloss in an informal perennial garden where its seedlings will not be objectionable, among shrubs or in a woodland garden, where it can spread to form a ground cover. It is an attractive companion for spring bulbs.
