Back in the late 1990s on a visit to garden writer Pam Harper's coastal Virginia garden, I was amazed to see the heat-hating forget-me-not thriving. Pam shared this special form of Myosotis palustris, which we subsequently named Myosotis 'Southern Blues' and propagated to share with other warm climate gardeners. This wonderful deer-resistant groundcover forms 6" wide rosettes of shiny green leaves connected by short above-ground stolons. The patch is adorned from spring through summer with dozens of tiny sky blue (not purple) forget-me-not flowers. Myosotis palustris 'Southern Blues' is equally at home in average (not dry) garden soil or in a shallow water pool. In two seasons, expect a 3' wide patch...faster with very rich, moist soils.
