Description: Myosotis sp., apparently Myosotis stricta (Blue Forget-me-not or Strict Forget-me-not). Triangular grassy area on west side of Flatbush Avenue enclosed by Flatbush Ave and exit to Belt Parkway, Brooklyn, NY. I have grappled quite a bit arriving at a species identification and feel reasonably sure these plants are indeed Myosotis stricta but would appreciate correction if I am wrong! (I think on previous years I may have identified these plants as a different Myosotis sp. due to limited literature resources at the time.)
