Forget-Me-Not Facts: There are many varieties of Forget-Me-Nots, but one of the most common is Myosotis Sylvatica. They are fuzzy little plants that will bear clumps of light blue (and sometimes pink) blossoms in mid-spring. Because they tolerate shade, they are excellent ground-cover plants for areas beneath trees or in the shadows of taller plants. They may also do well in a rock garden, if it is somewhat shaded, or by the banks of a water feature such as a stream or waterfall. Some varieties grow as wildflowers.
