In Germany, the forget-me-not got its name from a romantic tragedy involving a knight and his lady. Although the tale has several versions, the most common is that the pair were strolling along the Danube River when the lady saw a blue-flowered plant that had been dislodged by the water and was about to float downstream. She wanted to save it, so the knight leaped into the water to retrieve it. The current was too swift, however, and as he was swept past her out to sea, he threw the flowers onto the bank, calling out “Vergiss mein nicht,” which means forget-me-not.
