The Q&A Archives: Forget-me-nots Die Back

Question: After my blue forget-me-nots have bloomed the foliage turns grayish and dies off. Do you have any idea of the problem?

Answer: Myosotis (forget-me-not) is an annual, and as such will die after flowering and producing seed. As the forget-me-not's health declines they are subject to diseases such as powdery mildew. The plants reseed themselves readily, so once the seed pods have spilled their seeds you can pull the plants.
