I sent this basket to my daughter for her 50th birthday and asked for hardy plants. Other than the Polyanthus and rose can anyone ID the rest. I thought the blue one was a forget me knot but the leaves are wrong. I thing the other one is an Osteospermum. Can anybody help

Left does look like Myosotis (forget me not), and right looks like a form of Osteospermum, Margo.

Yes Margo, you are right with your guess, osteospermum and forget me not. There are several different types of forget me not, not just the regular self-sowing garden one. Perhaps Silver surfer can tell you which variety that is.

Nice gift! Very Happy
