Omphalodes are annuals, biennials or perennials with ovate, glossy green foliage and gorgeous saucer-shaped blue or white flowers that closely resemble forget-me-nots. They are best used as groundcover plants beneath shrubs or in flower beds and borders within a cottage and informal garden. You should expect to see Omphalodes grow to an approximate height and spread of 10-50cm (4-20”).
Omphalodes are best planted in moist, well-drained soil of loam, chalk, sand or clay within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. Enrich the planting area with a generous amount of compost. Plant your Omphalodes to the same depth and width as the root ball and water thoroughly to settle the soil into place. Site your plants in an area that will attract part shade.
Apply a generous amount of mulch around the planting area to deter weeds and to keep the soil cool. Remember to water your plants regularly, especially during periods of drought. Cut back plants once they have finished flowering.
It is possible to propagate Omphalodes by seed sown in pots within a cold frame in spring. Alternatively, you can propagate by division.
