This is Brunnera macrophylla commonly known as Siberian Bugloss or Perennial Forget-me-not.

Brunnera macrophylla facts and information.

This low deciduous perennial can have ultimate height of 0.3 metres (1ft); it has a spread of approx 0.6 metres (2ft).
Because of its size it is ideal if clustered in groups of 3's, 5's or 7's for impact.
A native of Siberia as the common name suggests, it is frost hardy and has large branched clusters of pale blue flowers which resemble the blooms of the hardy biennial Forget-me-not.
These flowers are held aloft dense heart-shaped leaves with soft downy hairs.
Brunnera is an easy to grow, low maintenance perennial that thrives in partial to deep shade with a moist soil.
Small back gardens in the city and woodland gardens are ideal planting situations due to its shade tolerance.
If you have a sunny position, then Brunnera will tolerate this location if an adequate supply of ground water is available.
I would highly recommend this plant if you require a long blooming (April to June) front of border planting.
