Borage (Borago officinalis)

If your favorite color is blue you are going to love Borage. If you’ve notice many plants are labeled as having blue flowers but most are really more like purple. Borage has the clearest and truest blue color out there. And it is edible too. Just imagine how pretty a few Borage flowers will look in your drink, salad or candied on top of a cupcake.

This is a edible annual that has a fresh cucumber fragrance. It likes full-sun to part-sun and will reach about 2 ft tall. Easy to grow by seed and readily self-seeds so you can enjoy it again and again.
