Forget-Me-Not Seeds (Chinese Type) 5190. Heirloom Flower. Annual.

Approx. 250 seeds/pkt (170 seeds/gram)

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.  This product is part of the Urban Garden Collection; click here to check it out.

How to Grow

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.
