Heirloom Blue Forget-Me-Not
Our farm grown and hand collected heirloom Chinese blue Forget-Me-Not seed. These lovely bright blue flowers will remind you of Grandma's garden. In 1939 blue Forget-Me-Not was a All-America Selections Winner, and is still popular today.
A favorite old-fashioned annual that bears an abundance of deep, bright blue blooms produced in loose sprays on stiff upright stems all summer long. Growing to 16"-18" tall, this biennial (grow as an annual) features attractive gray-green foliage. In the 15th century Germany, it was supposed that the wearers of the flower will not be forgotten by their lovers.
Legend has it that in medieval times, a knight and his lady were walking along the side of a river. He picked a posy of flowers, but because of the weight of his armour he fell into the river. As he was drowning he threw the posy to his loved one and shouted "Forget-me-not".
