|Biennial forget me nots up close|
The Daily DuBrule
Tis the season for forge-me- nots. The most common form are the biennials. These form a rosette of foliage in the summer of year one and bloom in the spring of year two. I was given a plant of biennial forget-me-nots by one of my employees and planted it beneath my asparagus. The second year it was magnificent- a sea of sky blue flowers with spears of asparagus rising above. An unexpected combination that I truly loved. This year, the Myosotis have seeded down the hill to the next raised bed over. The bed is chock full of them and interspersed between them are the burgundy, lacy leaves of 'Ruby Streaks' mustard. It just goes to show you how nature can create combinations that you never would have dreamed of.
