'Mermaid' is a cultivar of the native British water forget-me-not. It is an improvement on the wild plant in several ways - it has larger blooms and larger, more sturdy, semi-bullate leaves, attractively ruffled and often tinged with pink. It also has a much more compact and pleasing growth habit. It flowers freely all summer long and is easy to grow, giving a reliable display of lovely small blue flowers.

Planting Tips: Cut old stems back to the base regularly to keep the foliage compact and fresh, and new blooms forming. We recommend starting your Myosotis scorpioides 'Mermaid' off in a pot of 1 litre capacity. Read more on how to pot and care for your plant here.
