The Chatham Island Forget Me Not, Myosotidium hortensia, grows on coastal cliffs in its native Chatham Islands. These islands are 420 miles off the south east coast of New Zealand and like many isolated places have several endemic species, both flora and fauna. It is unlikely that one of these highly specialised creatures finds the large, slightly corrugated and waxy leaves quite as irresistible as our home grown molluscs. If so, quite how they have managed to survive is a mystery. The battle against the evil slimy ones is definitely worth it when you see the magnificent sky blue flowers. Although you may not be able to keep it for long, it seeds prolifically and will be back to reap its revenge, returning next year ten fold.
