CYNOGLOSSUM - Chinese Forget-Me-Not
Annual 16 in/41 cm Approx. 8,400 seeds per oz/28 g;
DIRECT SEEDING: Broadcast or scatter seed thinly about Apr. 10th. Rake seed lightly into the soil surface and firm. Seeds germinate fairly quickly - even during cool weather. Thin. Thin seedlings out to 6 in/15 cm apart, when they are about 2.5 in/ 6 cm tall. Chinese Forget-Me-Not is particularly suited for planting in dense shade areas, such as among shrubs, around tree trunks and along north or east walls. Combines well with wild flowers, columbine, impatiens, etc. Unfortunately, it is not a good cut flower - as delicate sky blue flowers wilt quickly after cutting.
