Forget-Me-Not


Forget-Me-Not
Myosotis sylvatica ‘Deep Blue Tower’
(my-oh-SO-tis) (sil-VAT-ee-kuh)

This is the first time we have grown a variety of Forget me nots and this one is a winner. The color maybe my favorite of any flower. Normally there are hundreds of the regular species of this plant growing in the gardens and we gently encourage them by letting them seed after flowering to overcome their annual and biennial nature. Although some plants seem to persist for several years for the most part they peter out after one or two seasons.

Today we are going down to NYC to finish the annual plantings and plant some perennials and a couple of shrubs. Traffic should be a little better than going down on during the week but parking will probably still be a nightmare.
