(Borago officinalis) Beautiful blue star-shaped flowers hang in clusters.
The leaves are covered with stiff white hairs that
give the plant a wooly appearance. Bees love the
abundant bright flowers, which are great for
floating in cool drinks at summer parties. Plants
grow 2-3' tall and self-sow readily. Annual.
Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds outdoors after the danger of frost has
passed. Can also be started indoors 3-4 weeks before
last frost. Borage prefers ordinary well-drained soil.
