Water forget-me-not is a lovely creeping British native plant producing dainty blue flowers from late May to September. They are very good for covering the edges of the pond and will raft across the water. Really good for wildlife, it is 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.
Please note the leaves are quite delicate and bruise easily, so they don’t always travel well especially in peak season when their foliage is denser. We handle and pack them as carefully as possible but if they seem a bit sorry for themselves they will quickly recover.
Myosotis: Mouse ear referring to the shape of the leaves
