A fast growing native perennial with pretty blue flowers May-Oct. A good edging plant for the pond that will raft across the water. Loved by finches for the small seeds while bees and butterflies are attracted by its nectar. Also a particular favourite of newts as they like to lay their eggs in the folded leaves. Grows well in sun or shade.
Myosotis: Mouse ear referring to the shape of the leaves
Planting position: Pond marginal shelf up to 10cm deep or very wet soil
