      The leaves do resemble hosta leaves. Hostas grow well here too. These leaves however are much thicker and glossier than the hostas in NZ. The Chatham Islands have a very harsh wind and salt spray swept environment and these forget-me-nots thrive in those conditions. The leaves are thick and glossy to cope with the worst of conditions. I’m looking forward to the flowers in the next few weeks.
