Borage is a versatile herb that is exquisite in the garden. It is known for attracting bees and other beneficial pollinators.
An added bonus is that the plant has edible, blue and sometimes pink flowers with a cucumber-like flavor that 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. Borage is fairly drought tolerant once established.
