This plant is slightly less hairy than the field forget-me-not and has larger flowers 8-10mm wide. It is generally more robust. It has blue flowers sometimes with a bright yellow eye. The caylix teeth have stiff hairs and the leaves oblong (3 to 5 times as long as wide). It grows in and by woodland but has also been widely planted in gardens and is often an escapee. Picture taken at Stevington Bedfordshire - 13th May 2006.
