Myosotis is a genus of flowering plants in the family Boraginaceae. In the northern hemisphere they are colloquially denominated forget-me-nots or Scorpion grasses. The colloquial name "Forget-me-Not" was first used through King Henry IV of England.
Forget-me-nots are a group of about 50 species in the genus Myosotis which is part of the Boraginacae family. Most have racemes of small, flat, bright blue flowers (some varieties of white and pink), with five petals growing thickly on their stems. Myosotis is a Greek name meaning “mouse-ear” and was given to the plant because of the shape of the small leaves. Both the annual and perennial are native to Eurasia.
