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.

Companion to beans, tomatoes, onions
I grew this as a companion to tomatoes and beans in 2015. It came back in 2016, good for my onions. Young leaves were good in salads. Older leaves smell bad and have an off-putting prickly texture, but were good when cooked. It was attractive to rabbits and bugs (worked well as a trap crop), and needed to be cut back to keep it from getting too big and flopping over. The flowers are very pretty.

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.
