Stems of myosotis asiatica
are relatively short, around one foot, generally growing at an angle. Plants typically produce many stems, forming a rounded clump. Leaves and stems have a covering of short, stiff hairs, spreading or flattened. Lower stem laves are oblanceolate in shape, tapering at the base to short stalks, while upper stem leaves are elliptic, and stalkless. Leaves tend to point upwards, staying quite close to the stem.
Flowers are usually bright blue, rarely white; they have a narrow tube opening abruptly to five rounded lobes, which have yellow appendages at the base. Flowers form in compact clusters at the top of each stem, becoming more elongated later in the season. The lobed calyx beneath the corolla is also short-hairy. The calyx lobes are longer than the calyx tube.
