What is borage?


Borage is an interesting and easy plant to grow. The tender shoots of this annual are tasty when young, but develop a stiff, prickly feel when older. Borage produces very deep blue star shaped flowers from late spring to late summer. Bees love them and they make an interesting honey. The blue flowers are a great edible flower to put on wedding cakes or candied as a treat.
