Forget-Me-Not Seeds (Chinese Type) 5190 Heirloom Flower. Very fast growing plant producing clusters of sweetly scented, clear indigo-blue flowers at the top of 40 cm (16") high plants. Foliage is an attractive silvery-grey. Plants are generally finished flowering by late July/early August and will often re-seed themselves for the following season. This plant is a biennial that is grown as an annual in most parts of Canada. This Forget-Me-Not is adventurous but is not invasive. Bees absolutely love the flowers! Can provide some welcome early spring colour in partially shady sites.
