It is 15 to 43 centimeters long, and the leaves are heart–shaped. Clusters of flowers are pale to dark blue in color. Each flower is saucer–shaped and measures about 1.3 centimeters across.
Forget–me–not is a small flower, but there are many stories associated with it. Once goddess of flowers Flora came down and began to give names to the plants. It seemed to her that she named all flowers and she wanted to go home. Suddenly she heard a quiet voice: “Give me the name, Flora!” Flora looked around, but didn’t see anyone.
