100+ Chinese Forget Me Not Flower Seeds- CYNOGLOSSUM BLUE- Cynoglossum amabile- Nomeolvides--(FL048)


Cynoglossum amiable (or) Chinese Forget Me Not’s are one of the most adorable, delicate, treasured spring flowers that we grow. They are very similar in appearance to the old fashioned Forget Me Not’s you’ll find growing in woodland spots of the garden but this particular type makes a far better cut flower crop for a number of reasons. First, Chinese Forget Me Not’s can be grown as an annual crop unlike the traditional biennial types which require a year or more to properly bloom. Second, they have nice tall, sturdy stems that often reach 18″ or more. Perfect for bouquet work and solid bunches to the floral design trade.

 Chinese forget-me-not is a biennial most often grown as an annual. The plants grow to 2 feet tall with flowers appearing as sprays above the plant. The foliage is gray-green. Lastly they are extremely productive! As long as you keep on top of harvesting and don’t let the flowers run to seed, they will bloom for up to 6 weeks.

Growing: Sow seeds shallowly at 5mm (¼”) deep, and thin or space to 20-30cm (8-12″) apart. If starting indoors, keep seeds in total darkness until they sprout, and then provide bright light. Ordinary, well-drained garden soil with a neutral to slightly acid pH range will work well. Weak plants result from rich soil. This species is well suited to xeriscaping.

Plant Chinese Forget Me Not seeds in fall where winters are mild (seldom dipping below 10 degrees) or sow the flower seeds in early spring in colder climates after frost season has passed and night time temperatures are starting to stay warm. Cover the flower seeds lightly with a quarter inch or less of good, quality of soil, and keep the wild flower seeds moist. Before long you will have a beautiful display of wildflowers. Chinese Forget-Me-Nots are liberal self-sowers. They will drop their own flower seeds and be back the following spring.

If self-seeding is not wanted, cut back the plants to the ground after flowering or tear the plants out. Timing Direct sow mid-winter (February on the coast) or start indoors late February to mid-March. Start 6-8 weeks before planting out. Direct sow again in autumn. Seeds will sprout in 15-10 days, particularly if you can maintain their optimal soil temperature of 18-24°C (65-75°F).
