Feeling blue after the long, cold winter? Myosotis Bellamy Blue will lift your spirits! With its innovative darker blue hue, this newcomer expands the colour palette of the early spring range. Bellamy Blue does not require vernalisation and is therefore suited for a longer season.

Growers will love this innovation as its cultivation fits in perfectly in any existing Myosotis scheme. Retailers will welcome the spectacular darker blue colour at moment of sale. Finally, consumers will adore these cute, petite, darker blue flowers which announce the arrival of spring.

The jury commented that the deeper blue colour was not yet existing in vernalization free Myosotis and therefore awarded Bellamy Blue with a Gold Medal for 2022.
