Product Details

Product Details

Forget-me-nots form clouds of small, blue flowers that are long-lasting complements to spring-blooming bulbs, especially Tulips. Myosotis self-sows readily, which is an advantage with this biennial or short-lived perennial. We refrain from deadheading all of the plants in our borders, and by late summer seedlings have appeared that will bloom in spring to early summer the following year.




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

CULTURE: Full sun to part shade and average garden soil. Space 5" apart. Planted in the fall, Forget-me-nots bloom the following spring. Plants seldom need any fertilizing. This biennial/short-lived perennial often dies back by July. Plants tend to self-sow aggressively, but seedlings are easily removed in the fall or the spring.
