Myosotis (mye-oh-soh-tiss) forget-me-not; Boraginaceae Family. Annuals, perennials and biennials, Myosotis is native to Europe and America. One of the most beautiful of the early spring flowers, growing in mat-like clusters, the blossoms of sky-blue, pink and white are halted only by the heat of summer. Few spring flowers are as valuable or as pretty as edging plants, as under planting in a bulb garden, in the cutting garden, for naturalizing in the wild garden, in moist woodlands and besides pools and small streams. Partial shade and an acid soil give best results, but these flowers are adaptable to many soils and often do well in full sun. Self sows abundantly once established.
Myosotis sylvatica (sil-vat-ik-uh); native to England, makes bushy, sturdy plants and blooms abundantly. Native to dry woodlands, it grows best in well-drained soil with abundant moisture.
