This is my husband's favorite flower, "Forget-Me-Nots". This was his gift to his mom on one occasion. He used to say that when you receive this flower, it will make you not forget the person that give this flower. Aren't they beautiful?
Myosotis (generic name) means "mouse's ear", (after the shape of the leaf) is a genus of flowering plants in the family Boraginaceae that are commonly called "Forget-me-nots". There are approximately fifty species in the genus, with much variation. A considerable number of the species have small (1 cm diameter or less) rather flat, 5-petalled blue flowers growing profusely on straggly stems, flowering in spring and all summer. The seed pods and some seeds will fall out. In the United States, Myosotis alpestris is the state flower of Alaska.
