About forget-me-not

Forget-me-nots are a wonderful ground cover for a shady area, although they will also grow in full sun. They are easy to grow and if left alone, will create a lovely blue blanket of flowers as they reseed and multiply, eventually covering large areas. The blooms last a considerable time, fading slightly with age.

In The Records

Stories say the name came from two lovers walking by the Danube riverbank who found the blue blooms. The man picks the flowers for the woman, but sadly, they fall in and are swept apart, as they lose one another, he calls to his lover to never forget him.
