 A Bit More About Borage:

  • Borage, Borago officinalis, is an annual herb in the forget-me-not, or Boraginaceae family that has naturalized across most of the United States.
  • Native to the Mediterranean region, it has made a name for itself far and wide as a tasty herb with edible flowers that pollinators love.
  • The flowers and leaves are used in a variety of herbal remedies, and the oil extracted from the seeds is high in gamma linolenic acid, which may help to reduce inflammation and alleviate symptoms of asthma.
  • Borage grows just about anywhere, and that’s only a slight exaggeration. It thrives in full sun to part shade locations, in containers, or spreading out in a meadow.
  • It’s suitable for gardeners in USDA Hardiness Zones 2-11 and isn’t too demanding when it comes to moisture or soil – which is why it pops up in sandy and clay soil alike. So long as it doesn’t have wet feet, borage will be happy to do its thing.
  • The plant features beautiful, bright blue flowers that have a distinct star shape.
  • The stems are covered in fuzz and have a deep red color when they’re young.
  • Plants grow to a mature height of about two feet.
