{chinese forget me nots}
Cynoglossum amabile
25+ seeds

Chinese Forget-me-nots have clusters of tiny blue flowers, rising up to 30" high. They bloom later than regular forget me nots, starting in early summer and lasting into late summer if spent blooms are removed. Unlike other forget me nots these flowers prefer the sun, though they will do well in part shade.

The seeds of the Chinese forget-me-nots are covered in tiny velcro like barbs, causing them to attach to clothing when brushed against and later fall off, leaving the small seed to germinate elsewhere. In case they were worried about being forgotten, they will do what they can to remind you.

{how to plant}
