Chatham Island forget-me-not

Chatham Island forget-me-not

One of the most colourful examples of Chatham Islands’ flora, the Chatham Island forget-me-not (Myosotidium hortensia) grows in exposed coastal locations. It has become a popular display flower in mainland gardens. Botanically speaking, it is not a true forget-me-not but its flowers are very similar.
