Every morning for the past month (and their still blooming strong) I have been greeted by a bench full of bright sky blue flowers with bright sunny yellow centers. I love Forget-me-nots for their long lasting spring bloom and for all the little bouquets I have picked of them over the years. There’s nothing better to fill a mayday basket or planter with. Here’s some dirt on Forget-me-nots:
Forget-Me-Nots are biennial flowers. If you want to have Forget-Me-Nots coming up next year it is important that you allow the plants to reseed as the original plant will not come back until the third year. Forget-Me-Nots aren’t picky about their soil but they do like a little bit of moisture. They make themselves at home in rain gardens, along stream banks, perfect for a low spot in the garden where it stays moist longer after a rain, or near the end of the down spout. They are deer and rabbit resistant and grow quickly. Full sun to part shade.
