Myosotis scorpioides

Water Forget-Me-Not

These annuals, biennials and perennials are excellent in beds, flower borders, woodland and rock gardens and containers. Long-blooming, they begin flowering blue, pink or white in late spring and continue through the summer. Short-lived annuals do best in cool and moist conditions. There, they often naturalize and self-seed year after year. Plant all with other shade and moisture lovers such as Primula, Trollius and Hosta. In mild climates, sow seeds of annuals in early fall for winter and spring bloom. In cold climates, sow indoors in March. Also protect roots of perennials in winter. If you want annuals to naturalize, leave spent flowers on plants to allow development and scattering of seeds.
