Product Details

This lovely mix of part shade-loving flowers gives you an extended bloom period. M. sylvatica is the traditional, 6"–8" tall forget-me-not that blooms in early spring and is perennial in USDA zones 3–8. Chinese forget-me-not (C. amabile), an annual, while not a true forget-me-not, has very similar flowers but grows 12"–24" tall and will bloom into summer. Excellent for moist, part-shade areas, as a bulb cover, or early cover for rock gardens. NOTE: Myosotis is the smaller seed; Cynoglossum is the larger.

We cannot ship this variety to Wisconsin as per state regulations. Please do not order if your shipping address is in Wisconsin.
