Hackelia floribunda

 
Hackelia floribunda
manyflower stickseed
Common name manyflower stickseed
Family boraginaceae
Life cycle biennial/perennial
Flowers blue (May)
Size 12"
Light sun-part shade
From seed Flowers first year from seed sown indoors early.

Wildflower whose value in gardens is a bit questionable - the flowers, though charming in their powder blue petiteness, don't make much of a statement from afar, and the overall form of the plant is rather coarse. Which could be said about a lot of forget-me-not relatives.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
