Description

Heirloom Flower. Very fast growing plant producing clusters of sweetly scented, clear indigo-blue flowers at the top of 40 cm (16″) high plants. Foliage is an attractive silvery-grey. Plants are generally finished flowering by late July/early August and will often re-seed themselves for the following season. This plant is a biennial that is grown as an annual in most parts of Canada. This Forget-Me-Not is adventurous but is not invasive. Bees absolutely love the flowers! Can provide some welcome early spring colour in partially shady sites.  

How to Grow

170 seed/gram. This old time favourite can be direct seeded in the garden in mid April to mid May. Sow seed 6 mm (1/4″) deep and water lightly. Germination occurs in 5-10 days. Thin to 30-35 cm (12-14″) apart when the seedlings are 7.5 cm (3″) tall. Plants grow best in full sun but will tolerate partial shade as well as both wet and dry conditions.
