Charming, diminutive forget-me-nots are delicate plants with beautiful little blue flowers. While they do come in pinks and whites, it's the blues that people find most delightful.
Forget-me-nots are excellent in pots, as edgings, and planted close as a groundcover. These short-lived plants, mostly treated as biennials, reseed generously. The flowers have colorful, tiny yellow eyes and bloom in spring and into early summer. They are prone to damage by slugs.
The evergreen glossy, heart-shape foliage of European wild ginger provides an elegant contrast to forget-me-nots in light shade.Columbine
In myriad hues, the dainty dancing flowers of columbines are charming above a sea of forget-me-nots in sun or light shade.Bleeding heart
The low mounds of ferny leaves and heart-shape, rosy pink flowers of fringed bleeding heart contrast well forget-me-nots in texture and color. They bloom at the same time and enjoy similar conditions.Corydalis
Loose mounds of blue-green cut leaves and bright yellow flowers produce a pleasing complementary contrast with forget-me-nots on shady slopes.
