Borage is an easy growing direct sow annual herb plant with vivid blue flowers and leaves and flowers that have the flavor and scent of cucumbers. 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 actually a somewhat gangly plant, but you barely notice it because the star-shaped flowers are so vibrant. They start out pink and turn a true blue, hanging in downward facing clusters. Even the fuzzy white buds are attractive. Both the flowers and the leaves are edible, with cucumber-like flavor. The leaves contain potassium, calcium and mineral salts.

Culture: Borage should be started outside 1 - 2 weeks prior to the last frost. It can be planted anytime in a mild climate. Plant in full sun at a depth of around 1/4 inch. Borage occupies a lot of room once it matures. The herb readily reseeds itself, however, sometimes borage does not flower the first year. Borage can be biennial.
