Myosotis sylvatica 'Victoria Blue'( VICTORIA SERIES)
Woodland forget-me-not is a biennial or short-lived perennial of European origin. The cultivar 'Victoria Blue' is distinguished by its abundant sky-blue flowers and compact habit. In spring plants form small clumps of small hairy gray-green leaves from which rise branched flower stems with curled flower spikes (helicoid cymes) dotted with tiny blue five-petaled flowers with white and yellow centers. These fairyland flowers have an airy, ephemeral appearance and can bloom from spring into summer.
To keep the plants healthy and happy, give them midday shade and rich soil with average drainage. Cut them back or remove them after they enter their summer dormancy. Forget-me-nots replace themselves with self-sown seedlings, which may require thinning. Plant them in a woodland garden or mixed border or as bedding flowers for spring. They look wonderful planted among late-flowering spring bulbs and are not favored by deer.
