Plant ~ Brunnera macrophylla ~ 'Betty Bowring'


I am always interested as why some things are named after specific people, I clearly have an enquiring mind!, so this one was no exception, and as the surnme of BOWRING appears in my family tree I simply "had" to record it.

Brunnera macrophylla 'Betty Bowring' is a superb white flowered brunnera. The white flowers emerge in early spring and grow taller as the leaves come up. Then the dark green heart shaped leaves form superb groundcover in summer. The heigh is about 18 inches.

But who was Betty Bowing & why?
