Forget-me-not

Myosotis scorpiodes (True Forget-me-not)

I found this flower in August along a riverbank in Manistee

It’s a small wildflower with lance shaped leaves alternated on the stem, almost grass looking.   Sometimes called scorpion grass for the way the flower stem uncoils as the flowers open.  It produces stick tight seeds that attach to your sock. This is a Non-native species.

I have not found anything on edibility or medicinal qualities.
