Forget-Me-Not Spring and Summer HEIRLOOM Seeds

Myosotis sylvatica and Cynoglossum amabile

Item #1219

Annual and Perennial varieties. This lovely mix of shade-loving flowers gives you an extended bloom period! Myosotis sylvatica is the traditional
Forget-Me-Not, blooming in early spring, and reaching 6"- 8" tall.
Chinese Forget-Me-Not (Cynoglossum amabile), while not a true Forget-Me-Not, has very similar flowers and habit. It grows 12" - 24" tall and will bloom into summer. Excellent for moist, shady areas, as a bulb cover, and early cover for rock gardens. Deer resistant.
