Species:  Myosotis  sicula Guss. 

English Name:  Jersey Forget-me-not


Native. M. sicula was discovered at both its Jersey localities by A. J. Wilmott in 1922. It was last seen at Ouaisné Common in 1957. The Noirmont population disappeared in the 1980s when the pool became shaded by Salix species, but these were cleared in 1983 and it was rediscovered at the site in 1992. The very small population there maintains a precarious existence.
