Caucasian forget-me-not a large flowering annual
The Caucasus Forget-me-not, or Brunnera macrophylla as it is called in Latin, is a long-lived perennial in spring bloom. It enchants every garden lover from April to May with its light blue, delicate panicle-shaped flowers. After flowering, small inconspicuous nodes form, which contain a multitude of seeds, making it possible for the Caucasus forget-me-not to reproduce in the garden. The leaves of the Caucasus forget-me-not are heart-shaped and only appear during or after flowering. The different varieties of the forget-me-not differ mainly in the colour of their leaves, with the large-flowered Caucasus forget-me-not being dark green. In other varieties it often ranges from light green to green with a white edge.
