I have got three of these plants planted in April next to each other and they have been doing very well. Today however, the middle one is showing brown and wilted leaves and looks like it is on the way out - any ideas?? Thank you

Brunneras are a lovely plant for shade, I use them in dry shade, but like any newly planted plant, it needs to be watered, just check around the plant to see if the soil is damp, also you can cut the leaves back and keep on watering, it is a tough plant once established.

Hi Elaine again! Thank you so much for your help, it just seems odd that the ones on either side are fine, maybe its missing out on the water, when I do the watering!

We’ve just had a new garden planted up and are surprised that one minute the Brunnera seemed to thrive then almost over night two or three dotted around the garden collapse and look dead. We will leave them in and continue to water and hope they recover. Why might this sudden suicide happen?
