Forget Me Not is valued for its attractive flowers. Although the blooms are usually blue, other colors do exist. A bonus feature is that the buds preceding the blooms are pink. A short plant (often 5" at maturity) with a medium growth rate. The five-petaled flowers grow in cymes with a single flower on a central stem surrounded by additional blooms on branching stems. Although small (3/8"), they provide a good color display because they're numerous. Technically a short-lived perennial, most treat Forget Me Not as a biennial, sowing seed in mid-summer and enjoying the blooms the following year. Forget Me Not tolerates wet soil.
