(Borago officinalis)

Vigorous annual herb that readily reseeds. Flowers are true blue and make a beautiful edible garnish for beverages and salads. The leaves are also edible, but are best cooked as they are prickly.

Blue flowers are pretty in the garden and attract bees and other pollinators. Makes a nice border flower, and also is a good companion plant in the vegetable garden.

Borage is grown commercially to produce borage seed oil, which is a healthy oil that is high in GLA.
