The Myosotis genus has around 74 accepted species of annual, biennial or perennial herbaceous flowering plants. These delicate spring flowers are frequently grown in drifts through flower borders or in containers. Flowers may be either blue, yellow or white in colour with white or yellow-eyes creating frothy low growing clouds of colour under and around other spring flowers. The common name of Forget-Me-Nots was introduced in the Northern Hemisphere during the 19 century. Before then, they were known as Scorpion Grasses for the way the flower clusters are coiled or bent over. Sow Myosotis seeds in spring for this year's flowers or early autumn, for the next year. They are prolific seed producers and will spread naturally through your space. If they are growing where you do not want, clumps are easy to lift, divide and re-plant where you do want them. Myosotis is a member of the Boraginaceae family, and are native to Western Eurasia, New Zealand and the South Pacific with a few from the Americas. However, having been a popular choice as a bedding plant, they have widely naturalised in temperate latitudes around the world.
