Bay Forget-Me-Not

Don't mistake the invasive alien weed for this North American native beauty. This native plant is "Myosotis laxa" but far more common in Ontario is the European forget-me-not "Myosotis scorpiodes". If you have forget-me-nots in your garden but did not purchase and plant the native species, you've probably got the alien weed (family Boraginaceae). Read more about the importance of native plants in the "Biodiversity Garden" Gallery.
