Even in shade this perennial grows excellently well. You can plant Siberian bugloss as a solitary plant between lower plants. The leaves will combine beautifully with, for instance, spotted deadnettle (Lamium maculatum 'Beacon Silver') and lilyturf (Liriope muscari 'Moneymaker'). Or combine the spotted leaves of Siberian bugloss with other shade loving plants, such as Astilbe, granny's bonnet, large-leaf hostas and Japanese anemones.
Brunnera macrophylla is an easy plant requiring little care. Make sure the soil around the roots does not dry out. Soil that is too dry is not well tolerated.

In a shaded garden, Brunnera macrophylla will be an excellent ground cover and spreads naturally under trees and bushes without becoming invasive. .
