Long blooming combo for shady spots! Rock gardens bulb cover or scattered for charming patches of blue.
This lovely mix of part shade-loving flowers gives you an extended bloom period. M. sylvatica is the traditional, 6"–8" tall forget-me-not that blooms in early spring and is perennial in USDA zones 3–8. Chinese forget-me-not (C. amabile), an annual, while not a true forget-me-not, has very similar flowers but grows 12"–24" tall and will bloom into summer. Excellent for moist, part-shade areas, as a bulb cover, or early cover for rock gardens. NOTE: Myosotis is the smaller seed; Cynoglossum is the larger.
Variety InfoNumerous ⅓" across, petite blue star-shaped flowers. M.sylvatica has a yellow eye, while C. amabile is completely blue. Flowers rise gracefully above plants.
4 to 6 weeks before transplanting outside.
RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks before average last frost or as soon as soil can be worked. Also sow in early fall for early spring bloom the following season (fall planting may be more effective in warm climates)
