Plant Information

One of the all-time world favorites among wildflowers, based on the lovely bloom and also the romantic legend of its name: A medieval knight, gathering blue flowers along a stream for his lady love, was suddenly swept away by flood waters. As he disappeared, he tossed the bouquet to his lady with the immortal words, “Forget me not.”

Comments about American Meadows Forget Me Not Seeds:

This is the most beautiful of perennials. The plants are lovely early in the season with blooms covering what looks like a green birds nest upside down. Later the leaves develop stems and are leggier, with flowers stop, but still lovely. This is the best and most reliable blue flower I know of, heavenly massed in the garden.

          We use these wonderful flowers all over our wildflower garden and also in our shady raised beds. They are delightful. When I deadhead them, they often bloom a second time! A great flower for shady areas.

            The deer in my area will browse on almost anything, whether or not it is "deer resistent." But they never touch the forget-me-nots. What a find! And the color is so lovely.

            i have forget-me-nots in every shady nook and cranny in my garden. They have naturalised beautifully and reward me every spring by reflecting the sky onto my garden, and attracting and feeding the earliest of the wild bees.

            Q & A

            Plant With These:

            USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

            To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

            • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
            • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

            Find Your Planting Zone:
