Borago officinalis


Blooms Mid-Spring to Early Fall

18”-36” Tall

Plant 12” Apart 


Also known as starflower, this herb is native to the Mediterranean region. It self seeds readily, so can remain in your garden from year to year. Its large plants bear many edible flowers that taste faintly of cucumber and are especially fantastic in mixed drinks (our favorite is Gin and Tonics). The flowers are usually blue and are good for salads or garnishes. Borage can be used as an emollient to soothe dry, inflamed, or irritated skin, and makes a wonderful tea for nursing mothers.
