Description
Borage
Borago officinalis

Borage is an annual that will self-sow and return year after year in most areas. It grows two to three feet tall and is covered with blue, star-shaped flowers from June to August.

The edible flowers make an attractive addition to summertime drinks, either floated on the surface or frozen into ice cubes. Each packet contains two grams, which is approximately 100 seeds.

Medicinal Herbs Borage has probably been used by people since prehistoric times.  Pedanius Dioscorides, the ancient physician and author of the original De Materia Medica, wrote of the plant's properties in the 1st Century as did Pliny the Elder.

Reference to the medicinal properties of plants are described here for educational and historical purposes only and are not to be construed as a prescription, prognosis or diagnosis for any disease or illness.  As with any remedies or medicines, you should consult your personal health care provider before using.

Strawberry Companion
I grew this in my strawberry garden in 2013 as a companion plant. I planted the seeds and all 3 plants grew. They really are a pretty plant when they bloom. I harvested the blooms to eat in salads and to feed the chickens. I trimmed the plant a couple times to keep it in check and it did just fine. I will plant this in other areas to help attract bees etc. It is a super easy herb to grow and I am waiting to see if it comes back on its own this year.
