Myosotis discolor - Blue and yellow forget me not
This is another plant I see often in cultivated nursery fields. It
is small and only persists through spring, so although it is common, it is
not a major threat. I include it on this website primarily for thoroughness.
Foliage is alternately arranged, linear, and hirsute (very hairy).
The inflorescence is a form called 'scorpiod', for obvious reasons. This
type inflorescence is fairly unique among western Oregon weeds, with only
a few others being similar.
Flowers are initially yellow, but then fade to blue; another feature that
is rather unique.
