Plant details

Native to Turkey, this forget-me-not relative makes a complement for late-spring bulbs and perennials. It forms a low-growing mound of mid-green oval foliage. This is topped with lots of starry, bright-blue blooms in spring. Plants will grow on most soils but produce the best results on a moisture-retentive but free-draining soil. Plants resent disturbance and should only be divided when they become overcrowded. Plants will self-seed prolifically.
