Myosotis scorpiodes (palustris)     Perennial Forget-Me-Not      Zone: 4-10        

Myosotis scorpiodesTrue, perennial forget-me-not for fairly moist spots, even very shallow water. Narrow leaves form sprawling mounds. Bears small, blue flowers through summer. Very strong grower in moist soil.  Good groundcover in a swampy, spot.  Ours does fine in average soil but then takes the deluge of water that comes when it rains in a high run off area.

Soil: Moist      H: 6" W: Indef.           B/M: Blue Summer 

Note:  This plant can be an aggressive grower, especially in wet areas.  It's shouldn't be planted anywhere that you can't control it, especially a wetland area.  We find it's spread reasonable unless planted in a really wet spot.  Perfect in a soggy spot in your yard in a urban neighborhood for example, but not near a natural wetland area where you can't check it's spread in.  When it hits a dry spot, it controls itself in our long experience so it's fine for a boggy spot -- around your air condition, etc but not next to your neighborhood pond.
