That's lovely. What's it called. I'd like to try and get one for my garden.

Hello, It's Myosotidium hortensia, or the Chatham Island Forget-me-Not.
The flowers, a larger version of our own forget-me-not but the leaves are thick & fleshy, hence the slugs & snails are rather partial. I grow mine in large pots and the snails seem to leave them alone. Can be grown from seed. Good Luck. PamD
