Steve And Muffin’s Wildflowers #30.

Hi everyone and welcome back to another week of wildflowers! Today’s wildflower probably looks familiar to many people, but perhaps not. This is the “smaller forget-me-not”, it’s a native wildflower and related to the garden variety forget-me-not, but, it’s only about half the size with it’s flowers. The flowers are about 1/8 inch (3mm) across, which is tiny compared to the normal forget-me-nots which are about 1/4 to 1/3 inch (6 to 8mm) across. The plant height is 4 to 16 inches (10 to 40cm). It blooms from May to September though in our area it’s mostly just late May and June. It will grow in sunny to partly shady locations and likes areas with moist soil. It is found across Canada except in MB and SK. In the US it is found mainly in the western and eastern states, absent in the southern and southeastern states and some mid west states. It is a beautiful, though tiny, wildflower. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.
