Forget-Me-Not (Myosotis arvensis)

Forget-Me-Not - Myosotis arvensis:

Long grown in gardens, forget-me-nots have escaped flower beds and become part of the wild landscape. The plants are commonly found growing under trees and along riverbanks. There are about 50 species, or kinds, of forget-me-not.

Forget-me-nots are hardy plants; pests or diseases rarely affect them. Different varieties of forget-me-nots can grow anywhere from 6 to 24 inches (15 to 60 centimeters) high. The leaves are long and slender. Each leaf is covered with fuzzy hair. Forget-me-nots growing close together can create a large mat of plants, all sharing the same root system.
