Forget-me-nots

Small flowers that typically grow in dense groupings, with each flower usually having five petals. Forget-me-nots can grow in various colours, but they are most commonly a bright pale blue. In Middle-earth, though they doubtless grew far and wide, the tales of the Third Age associate them especially with Tom Bombadil and Goldberry. They appeared in Goldberry's golden belt, shining like blue eyes from its chain of golden lilies, and Tom's bright blue jacket is described as being of the same pale sky-blue colour as the forget-me-not flower.
