Plant A Day – True Forget-me-not

True Forget-me-not Myosotis scorpioides

True Forget-me-not
Myosotis scorpioides

There are five species of Myosotis in Indiana, three of which are native and two non-native.  True Forget-me-not is not native.  Bummer.  It’s a cute little plant that is occasionally found next to lakes and streams.

I don’t know where it got it’s name or why this particular Forget-me-not is “True”.  Please comment if you know.
