I own a mounded Forget-Me-Not plant (which do not seed and turn black at the end of their life) and it suddenly turned black and dead looking. I've also noticed holes in the leaves and are wondering if it is some sort of disease or if something is eating my plant! The first photo is of the plant and the second photo is the Sam type of plant next to the first one.

Hi and welcome. A picture would help a lot to figure out what happened. If you have a before and after, that would be even better.

Sometimes a sudden change in the weather - cold to hot, or hot to cool, or a lot of rain - can cause this kind of a dramatic plant tragedy. Are you sure it's dead? Pull it out of the pot and have a look at the root ball. Soggy? Dry? If nothing is obvious, look at the soil around the base of the plant, and underneath the leaves for signs of insects or fungus. Take pictures and post them here, please.
