Flora Focus || Forget-Me-Not & Evergreen Candytuft

Hello there! I've got two flowering ground covers for you today that are in bloom right now! The evergreen candytuft I planted last summer after it had already flowered, so I'm really happy to see it in all its glory this year. The forget-me-nots came to us from our neighbors yard, it decided it wanted to creep underneath the fence and start growing in our yard. I am perfectly ok with that!
Forget-Me-Not
Botanical Name: Myosotis
Flower: Small, 1 cm or less, blue, pink or white flowers with yellow centers. Most have 5 petals.
Leaf: Oblong in shape about 1" to 3" in length and about 3/4" wide. Covered in tiny little hairs, giving it a fuzzy feeling.
