Siberian Bugloss ‘Jack Frost’



So...I'm very excited cause I have this one plant in my garden that is sooo gorgeous and it has managed to stay alive! Since it was here when we moved I had to do some sleuthing to figure out what it was. The answer: Variegated Siberian Bugloss. I know....crazy. But it's nickname is Jack Frost. This is the most amazing plant cause it looks fairly normal but then all these beautiful blue blossoms come out of nowhere and it really glows in the garden.  So...if I could I would buy 10 of these. I really recommend them cause they are slugproof and well, what else do you need. heh. If anyone knows where to find them on the Eastside, please let me know.

And we have Joe's brother, Jon, to thank for the wonderful macro lens that allowed me to take a photo like this. It really is all about the lens. Really great. Thanks Jon. (and thanks Joe for having a birthday...heh)
