Forget-Me-Not, the common name of the Myosotis scorpioides had its name first appear in the mid-1500s. The name was a reference for the flower’s foul taste. Each variety of Forget-Me-Not sprouts slightly different flowers. The main type used in bouquets and planted in flower beds are the ones that produce small blue flowers with five petals. With careful breeding, you can end up with pink, purple and white varieties. These colours are not readily available from florists and nurseries, unlike the blue ones.
Forget-Me-Nots reminds people to remember the ones they love. It tells people to make memories that last and extend care to those who need it the most. Also, respect the dead and keep their memories in your hearts to ensure that their stories are heard by future generations.
