More Information About Myosotis
Here in the Southeast, we generally do not grow myosotis because it cannot tolerate our muggy summers. As always, exceptions exist and we have found a heat- and humidity-tolerant myosotis for our customers.
Because of the common name 'forget-me-not', many people grow myosotis in their gardens to commemorate loved ones who are far away or have passed away. Germans sometimes wear myosotis on their clothing to signify faithfulness to their lovers.
Forget-me-nots are also perennials!
Myosotis species can be annuals or perennials. Of course, we prefer the perennial varieties that can be enjoyed year after year.
Myosotis produces clusters of tiny blue, pink, or white butterfly-attracting flowers above a mat-like, deer-resistant, low clump of foliage. Myosotis can bloom from May to October and is great along the edge of borders, in rock gardens, or in containers. Some can also be grown near water or in shallow water, where they should be sited in full to part sun. When you're ready to grow myosotis in your perennial garden, we hope you'll check our online list of myosotis for sale.
