MYOSOTIS SCORPIOIDES (palustris) (Forget me not)

  • Product Details
  • Delivery Information
  • Customer Reviews
  • Buy in a 9cm basket (9cm/3" high)
  • British Native Water Forget-me-not (Myosotis scorpioides)
  • Small blue flowers on loose rafting stems with small leaves
  • 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 or shelf 1

Cut back the foliage of Myosotis scorpioides (formerly Myosotis palustris) once first flowering is over and you may get a second flush of flowers. The stems go black in winter but leave these in the water as fresh shoots will appear along their length in Spring. Myosotis scorpioides encourages wildlife and gives plenty of habitat opportunities. Newts in particular make use of Myosotis leaves for laying 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. A good plant for attracting bees, hoverflies and butterflies when in flower in Summer.

I would like to add my own comments of appreciation to those already posted, for the excellent service received by Waterside Nurseries. I only have a tiny pond, so my order was quite small, but all the plants were well packaged and arrived in good condition and undamaged. Sadly, a couple of the plants didn't survive after planting, but they were quickly replaced without quibble, and a free additional plant was also included. You can't beat that for customer service. I wouldn't hesitate to re-ord

Oxygenating plants arrived within 2 days, well packed and in good condition. Nice healthy little plants, much better than I've seen in most nurseries. Came with clear instructions and are now enjoying life in their new home in my pond. Well pleased. Will certainly order from here again.
