About

Myosotis alpestris or Alpine Forget-me-not is a herbaceous perennial plant of the genus Myosotis.

The Alpine Forget-me-not is the county flower of Westmorland in the United Kingdom and the state flower of Alaska.






Alaska's state flower, the wild native Alpine forget-me-not (Myosotis alpestris), grows well throughout Alaska in open, rocky places high in the mountains. You will see the diminutive alpine forget-me-not in midsummer, and perhaps one of several other varieties in Alaska (such as mountain and splendid forget-me-nots). Alpine Forget-me-nots belong to one of the few plant families that display true blue flowers.
