Large plants bearing hundreds of small edible flowers with mild cucumber taste, grows to 3’ tall 3’ wide. Abundant flowers are fun to candy, for cake decorations, freeze in ice cubes, add flavoring to cool teas, Pimms and wine drinks, bees love them. The leaves are edible and the plant is grown in gardens for that purpose in some parts of Europe, steamed to remove alkaloids. Good companion for legumes, spinach, strawberries, brassicas and tomatoes. Borage deters Japanese beetle and tomato hornworms. Commercially cultivated for borage seed oil. Also known as starflower. Do not eat if you are pregnant or lactating as 8-10 blooms may cause milk to flow. Tags: Color: Blue, Specialty: Cooking Green, Certification: Organic.

Borage is an old herb, known at least since Roman times. Native to the Mediterranean region and has naturalized in many other temperate climates.
