Myosotidium hortensia- Chatham Island Forget-me-not

Propagating Chatham Island Forget-me-not can be done in the fall because it blooms in late spring to early summer so if it is done in the spring you may have to wait until the following year for it too bloom. It prefers the same habitat as Primulas, which is partial shade and a rich moist but well draining soil. It is evergreen and will reach a height of 18"-24" and it flowers are a light blue. It is a native to New Zealand so is only hardy in Zone 8-9 and prefers cool summers and it is best fertilized with seaweed.
