Pastel pink and baby blue - I would have never planned this combination thinking it too bland. I think it works here because neither bloom is overpowering. The quantity of forget-me-nots seems to balance the larger mum flower.
The self-sowing Forget-Me-Not seeds followed gravity down the mulch slope over the winter and geminated in the Clara Curtis Mums. It’s what I love about the self-sowers. Every year I see surprising combination without any effort at all.
Mum ‘Clara Curtis’, Dendranthema zawadskii, planted in 2004 from Wayside, blooms all summer. I cut it back just a little in late fall. In spring it has always started to bloom early and continues to bloom until frost.
Annual Forget-Me-not ‘Blue Bird’ Myosotis dissitiflora, planted directly in the garden in 2006 with Ferry & Morse seeds.
