Does anyone grow this beauty? It is sometimes called false forget me nots. I've seen it in a varigated form and one calle Jack Frost that has silver leaves. I would love to plant it in my garden but it's expensive and I don't know much about growing it. I've read about how to grow it but was hoping someone on here might have personal experience with it. I trust you guys more then what the books tell me!!!

Hi Daisey~

A friend of mine grows this and it has taken off like wildfire in her garden - which she loves! [thumb] She has the blue, and it is in shade here in zone 6. It blooms early in the season, and then sometimes in fall when the temps. get a little cooler. I've been after her for a section - maybe this year will be the charm! [Wink]

Plants n pots, it's such a pretty plant I'd definitely take her up on getting a section of it. I'm not sure I can grow it here in zone 9 because the books say zone 7 (however, we all know they can be wrong and plants have a mind of their own). I've grown forget me nots successfully, so maybe it's worth a try. Anyone in California have any luck growing it?

I have Jack Frost and a cream variegated one that i,ve forgotten the name of .
They are both in a spot that is very moist and only gets sun for a few hours in morning,no props with them so far ,even the slugs leave them alone.
If you can get one ,grab it,great plants.

The grass may be greener on the other side,but you still have to mow it.
