Omphalodes verna (common names Navelwort or Blue-eyed Mary) is a perennial plant native to Central and South-east Europe.

This species can spread quickly, and can reach 8 to 12 inches in height. The plant has a stem that snakes across the ground, giving it the alternative name creeping forget-me-not, and typically grows in the shade of trees. It is typically hard to uproot and by some accounts may even be invasive, but mostly coexists with other plants well. Its leaves are grooved, semi-evergreen and medium green that reach 8 inches long and 3 inches wide. They are veiny, with fine hairs and oval to heart in shape, and radipdly pointed at the tip. In spring the plant produces small, blue flowers.[1][2]
