Location: Specimen located in a vernal pool by the confluence of the St. John and Fish Rivers in Fort Kent, Maine.
Substrate: Soil was dark, mucky, some roots, overall very wet.
Habitat: Specimen was growing in a large patch between mud in the vernal pool and sensitive fern patch. It was growing around dead brush from the spring ice-out.
The first photo is of a self-sown plant. The second photo is where a planting was made, which largely/completely died off, but then has come back.
Has been renamed M. pansa
These look like pink forget-me-nots, but I thought those were spring flowers (and blue).

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.
