The Q&A Archives: Blue Forget Me Nots Turning Pink

Question: I purchased 5 Forget Me Nots (all in bloom with blue flowers). One of the plant's flowers were starting to turn pink, but the other 4 were all blue. I planted them, and a few days later all 5 plants were turning pink, with very few blue flowers left. Can anyone tell me why? I would like to help the plants return to their original color and keep them healthy. Thanks!

Answer: The flowers on these plants fade in color and seem to turn pink as they age. They do not last in bloom for very long. It sounds like they are following their natural course. Watering to keep the soil moist but not soggy would be about all you could do to keep them going as long as possible.
