  • And how tall is this plant - its always good to add a picture of the whole plant so growth habit and foliage is clearly visible, as well as the close up pics – Bamboo Jul 13 '18 at 10:58

This is Cynoglossum amabile, although not being able to see an image of the whole plant means I'm only 99% sure. It's a hardy annual plant native to Asia, but used as an ornamental in some gardens. Common names include Chinese Hound's Tongue and Chinese forget-me-not, and it is in the same Family as Myosotis and Borage. It has hairy leaves, rather like Borage does, reaches around a foot to 18 inches tall and grows relatively easily from seed sown direct where it is to flower. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cynoglossum_amabile
