Myosotis Sylvatica (Wood Forget-Me-Not) is a short-lived perennial with lovely bright blue, sometimes pink or white, tiny and airy, stellar flowers with charming white or yellow eyes. Blooming in dense cymes between mid spring and mid summer, the nectar and pollen is enjoyed by bumble bees and butterflies. The flowers rise atop a low mound of semi-evergreen, oblong, soft, hairy green leaves. Easy care and resilient to most pests, it is excellent for massing with spring-blooming bulbs and is particularly attractive beneath pink, rose or salmon-colored tulips.
