Borago officinalis
100 seeds
Maturity: 60 days

Believed to be native to the Mediterranean, Borage has been a culinary and medicinal herb in home gardens for many centuries. This 2-3' tall, bushy annual is covered in hundreds of dainty star-shaped blooms that come in attractive in blues and sometimes pink that are popular with pollinators. Dense plants smother nearby weeds and make a good groundcover companion plant. 

Borage blossoms have a sweet flavor with the essence of honey and cucumber. Add them to salads, make tea, or use as a tasty garnish. The leaves and stems, which also taste of cucumber, can be added to salads or cooked like spinach or chard. Will survive a light frost and self-seed readily. 

Flower seeds tend to have lower germination rates than vegetable seeds, please plan accordingly.
