Description

unsure if this is native or naturalised. It's quite a distance away from 'gardens' but there is a bit of boat traffic and it is always possible that some seeds were dispersed here by animals but how likely?! Very lush growth

Description

The anthers are held above the corolla scales so it keys out to Myosotis venosa.

Other plants nearby have the anthers within the corolla so key to Myosotis forsteri.

All plants were growing on limestone ledges.

I can't see any difference in the leaves.

Description from Wikipedia

Myosotis (/ˌmaɪ.əˈsoʊtɪs/; from the Greek: "mouse's ear", after the leaf) is a genus of flowering plants in the family Boraginaceae (or Cynoglossum family) that are commonly called forget-me-nots. Its common name was calqued from the French, ne m'oubliez pas and first used in English in c. 1532. Similar names and variations are found in many languages.
