    • Simples! Mysotis sylvatica can have yellow or white centres. A little pollen from one variety can make a difference to another.

    • As a story for lovers, forget-me-nots were first mentioned in a legend of a man and his sweetheart who were walking beside the River Danube. They saw the beautiful blue flowers that this plant had growing on an islet in the middle of the river. The man leapt into the water to get the blue flowers for his love. Although the current was strong, the man crossed the river safely and got the flowers. However, on his trip back to his sweetheart, he was swept away in the rapids. Before he completely disappeared, he threw the bouquet of forget-me-nots to his love and shouted forget-me-not.
