Hyssop flowers may be pink, blue or white. A number of species, some used as garden plants. One American anise hyssop may be pink or lilac and another has bright red flowers.

Amaryllis is South African, rare in American cultivation, lavender and white. What is sold in America as Amaryllis is really Hippeastrum, the bright red now the commonest of those sold. Species are spread from Argentina to Mexico.

Forget-me-not (Myosotis) may be blue or white (the Northern Hemisphere species) and is common in moist gardens.
