HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Direct sow Chinese Forget-Me-Not seeds in early spring after the last frost. Sow 1/4" below the surface and keep the soil consistently moist until germination, which should occur in 7-10 days. Cynoglossum amabile can be fall planted in regions with warm winters. To start the seed indoors, plant it in a flat or individual peat pots 6-8 weeks before the last frost of spring. Keep the soil consistently moist and at a temperature of 70 degrees F until germination. Transplant after the last frost.

Growing: Water the seedlings during their first few weeks of growth. Mature plants tolerate dry soil quite well, and will only need occasional watering in drought conditions; they may flop over in rich or moist soil. These plants will readily reseed themselves, and can spread in good growing conditions. If this is undesirable, cut the plant back after the blossoms fade to prevent the seed heads from forming. This plant attracts bees and butterflies.

Harvesting: For fresh flowers, cut the stems near the ground and place them in water immediately; strip the leaves that will fall below the water.

Seed Saving: After flowering, this plant will produce clusters of sticky seeds that turn from reddish green to their ripe brown color. Strip them from the stems, and spread them out to dry away from direct sunlight. Separate the Chinese Forget-Me-Not seeds from the debris and store the cleaned seeds in a cool, dry place.

Eye catcher

This smaller flower will stand out in all the other flower colors. If you have a wildflower area in bloom this will give great colors on the lower growth level.

True blue for you!

This annual is a beautiful true blue color....so hard to come by in annuals. It is easily grown from seed if you start it early enough. It also throws its own seed and it is winter hardy here in my zone 4-5 so I have it coming up in many areas of my garden. Some seedlings I transplant others I just let grow and bloom wherever they are. Can get tall..24 inches so there is lots of places to use this easy plant.

DESCRIPTION

Ever a favorite, these dainty blue flowers will charm any heart. This annual Asian variety has slightly larger flowers and rougher foliage than true Forget Me Not, but grows faster, and produces blooms sooner.
This Asian wildflower has slightly larger flowers and rougher foliage than its more well-known European counterpart. The genus name "Cynoglossum," meaning "hound's tongue," is derived from the resemblance of the coarse leaves to a dog's tongue. Cynoglossum amabile won the prestigious All-American Selections Award in 1939, and Chinese Forget-Me-Not seeds have been a garden favorite ever since.
