This is another plant which I couldn't keep alive. It was fine when it got to me but maybe it's too hot here for forgetmenots.
Myosotis sylvatica 'Bluesylva'
- Tiny plant with cheerful, vivid blue flowers
- Dazzling backdrop when planted en masse among spring bulbs
- Re-seeds easily, making it great in wildflower or woodland gardens
A classic spring bloomer, Myosotis forms a small mound of fuzzy green leaves with clusters of bright blue flowers. These are biennials, or short-lived perennials that self-seed to come back for many years. Forget-Me-Not is the state flower of Alaska.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow in full sun or part shade in moist, well-drained soil; amend with compost before planting. May require partial afternoon shade in hot southern climates.
