I have 3 forget me nots - one is in the 3rd year for it to come back and it is growing fine. The two new ones are not -- the leaves at the base of the plant are turning black. Thanks Can they be saved or are they goners? Love them! I have no photo and do not know how to upload it if I did.

This is likely a fungal infection. You can treat this by spraying foliage with a mixture of 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide to 1 cup of water in a spray bottle.
