Alpine forget-me-not is a variable plant.  Some plants have smaller flowers.  Some have flowers held above the mat on stems like the one you see here.  And color can vary from the typical blue to white, or intermediate shades.  The mat forming habit is very popular among alpine plants.  Some of those that also grow at lower altitudes will be taller in less severe conditions.  The variety of this forget-me-not with stems seems to be more random.
