When it comes to backyard landscaping, you don’t want to harm plants that are not designed to survive in the cold weather. In Minnesota, especially, Minneapolis – St. Paul, the Twin Cities area, it often gets cold as low as negative 20 to 40. You may want to consider landscaping with Minnesota native plants that thrive during the harsh cold weather.
One of the Minnesota native plants is forget-me-not (Myosotis sylvatica.) The blue forget-me-not is a cool season annual plant. Cool season annual plants can be direct sown in fall, and the flowers bloom on an early spring such as mid-April and May. These plants will form a rose-shaped decoration in fall looking like lettuces, and then burst into flower when the garden begins to come alive in the spring.
It is highly recommended to hire landscape designers to design your landscape garden before you plant those forget-me-nots.
