'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 in order to keep the foliage compact and fresh, and new blooms forming. Read more here on how to pot and care for your plant.
