Forget-me-not’s Latin name ‘Myosotis’ comes from an ancient Greek word meaning ‘mouse’s ear’ which the foliage was thought to resemble. In folklore, the forget-me-not’s name was given after a knight and his lady were strolling along a river bank when she spotted a beautiful unknown flower. The chivalrous knight bent down to collect a bunch, but the weight of his armour unbalanced him and he plunged into the river. As he was dragged beneath the surface he cried out “forget me not!” Henry IV adopted it has his emblem in 1398, during his time in exile, and it is one of the symbols of the freemasons, in order that they can identify one another secretly. Historically, forget-me-nots were worn by lovers to remember to each other while they were apart.
