  • Buy in a 9cm basket (9cm/3" high)
  • White Forget-me-not flowers (Myosotis scorpioides 'Alba') - a loose horizontal rafting plant.
  • Height 15cm (6") Flowers May - July
  • Plant with up to 5cm (2") of water over the top of the basket in a sunny or partially shaded pond or container pond. Suitable for shelf 0

Cut back the foliage of Myosotis scorpioides 'Alba' once first flowering is over and you may get a second flush of flowers later in the season. Stems go black in winter but leave these under the water as fresh shoots will appear along their length in Spring. All Myosotis scorpioides varieties encourage wildlife and give plenty of habitat opportunities - newts in particular make use of Myosotis leaves when they lay their eggs. As a rafting plant that is allowed to grow freely it will use plenty of surplus nutrients so help to keep pond or container water free from algae.
