Borage - Blue
Borage is an easy growing annual herb plant with vivid flowers. It is considered an herb but is often grown as a flower in vegetable gardens where it attracts pollinating bees and is considered a good companion plant for tomatoes, squash, and strawberries.
Borage is a somewhat gangly plant, but you barely notice it because the star-shaped flowers are so vibrant. Even the fuzzy white buds are attractive. Both the flowers and the leaves are edible, with a cucumber-like flavour. Use the leaves while they are young because as the plant matures, the stalks and leaves become covered with a prickly fuzz.
