The Q&A Archives: Forget-Me-Nots

Question: What do you do with Forget-Me-Nots after they are done blooming?

Answer: Myosotis (Forget-Me-Not) are annual, perennial, or biennial, depending upon variety. You can cut back the stems that have flowered, and new leaves will grow from the roots. The flowering period begins in late winter and finishes in late spring. Annual kinds die down, but their seed usually sprouts the following spring. The tops die down on perennial kinds, but new growth sprouts from the roots in late winter or very early spring.
