This 2'–3' tall, versatile herb is exquisite in the garden. In addition to attracting bees and other beneficial insects, it can be used as a cover crop. Edible, blue and sometimes pink flowers with a cucumber-like flavor can be used fresh to garnish dips, salads, and summer drinks, or candied with sugar for later use. The leaves and stems are also edible, delicious steamed like spinach or chard. Fairly drought tolerant once established.
Large plants bear hundreds of small, edible flowers with a mild cucumber flavor that is excellent in salads and as garnish. Long harvest period. Medicinal: Seeds are a rich source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA)
Sow borage seeds (Borago officinalis) for edible flowers or for pollinator habitat
