Forget-me-not pictures-white-pink-blue

Forget-me-nots are a welcome sight in early spring, a happy splash of color after a long winter.
These humble, self-sown annuals are very attractive in any garden, in flower beds, borders and rock gardens.
In early spring Forget-me-nots combine well with spring flowering bulbs, tulips, daffodils, as well as with pansies, primroses and columbine, in partially shaded areas.
Some of the species are short lived but others flower till early fall, though their foliage is not so attractive as they age.

Forget-me-not grows well in light, rich, and well drained soil, filling up the spaces between other, more showy plants.

Besides the well known blue flowering Forget-me-not, the white and pink varieties are really special, as you can see in the following photos:

I've only known forget-me-nots in blue. I'm so glad to know they also come in pink, my favorite flower color!

I haven't seen pink and white forget-me-nots, all we have here are the blue ones. Nice pictures.
