Chinese Forget-Me-Not 'Blue Showers' Cynoglossum amabile
Unlike traditional biennial Forget-Me-Nots which require a full year to bloom, Chinese Forget-Me-Nots can be grown as an annual crop and flower just three months from sowing. ‘Blue Showers’ produces an abundance of tall, delicate sapphire-smothered stems that look incredible en masse and mixed into arrangements.
Details: Plant type: annual Height: 18-24” Site: full sun Days to maturity: 75-85 days Plant spacing: 9-12” Pinch: when 8” tall Approx seeds per packet: 100
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.
