Chinese Forget-Me-Nots can be grown as an annual crop and flower just three months from sowing. Although not a ‘true’ forget-me-not, unlike traditional biennial Forget-Me-Nots which require a full year to bloom, this variety has very similar flowers. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden and makes for gorgeous cut flowers. Produces an abundance of tall, delicate sapphire-smothered stems.
Plant type: annual
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 75-85 days
Plant spacing: 9-12”
Pinch: when 8" tall
How to Grow: Start seed indoors in trays 8 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed. Seeds require total darkness to germinate so cover and place in a dark room until they sprout.
Harvesting/Vase Life: Forget-Me-Nots are prone to wilting in the heat, so harvest during the coolest part of the day and place directly into water to rest a few hours before arranging. Stems will last for 5-6 days if flower preservative is used.

We are a small family farm located in Redmond, WA.
Each of our tubers/seeds are harvested, processed and preserved by hand and while we've done our best to increase our stock to keep up with demand, as a small family farm, we offers very limited quantities of our tubers each Spring. They will likely sell out fast, so snag your favorites before they sell out.
