|Hi everyone, |
I saw this when I was hiking in the countryside near Ankara, Turkey. Among many wildflowers this one was surrounded by bees and butterflies, so I am curious what it is. The flowers resemble forget-me-not, but the foliage looks a bit different to me.

|Anchusa officinalis I think ..|
It could be Anchusa azurea .. (I'm leaning more to this)
There is also Anchusa italica ..

|This site will surely be useful to you!|
Anchusa officinalis isn't listed on the site but it appears to be in Turkey.

|Thanks for the reply and the website suggestion. Very useful indeed! |
After some research on the Internet, I agree that it should be A. azurea.
