4005-CO Borago officinalis
(Annual. 50 days.)
Observations about Borage from 2000 years ago still ring true with herbal wisdom today: “Borage cheers the heart and helps a drooping spirit.”
Borage is an annual herb that is a delight in any garden. Easy to grow from seed, plants are vigorous quickly growing to 2’ in one season. Pretty lilac-coloured star shaped blossoms are edible with a hint o’ fresh cucumber flavour! Add blossoms to salad mixes for a gourmet twist, or put into summer drinks for refreshing sweetness and colour. Self-seeds.
