Myosotis palustris Alba - White water forget-me-not

White water forget-me-not

Not as vigorous as its blue cousin, Myosotis palustris Alba is a compact, herbaceous perennial of average vigour – a delightful little plant. The small, toothed, spoon-shaped leaves are light green. White, single flowers are borne from May to September, and will self-sow. This is grown as a marginal plant in reliably wet soil. All forget-me-nots grow straggly in time, so the best policy is to keep taking cuttings. Cut back flower-stems after flowering to prevent the plant’s energy going into seeds.
