Description:

These hardy annual and perennial herbs are natives of southern Europe and Asia Minor. They grow up to 3 feet high. Their silvery leaves are fuzzy and coarse and the drooping, five-petaled, blue flowers are starry looking. These plants are favored by beekeepers and not only are they grown for their beauty, but for their economic value as well.
B. officinalis(the common Borage) is grown for its leaves, which are used in flavoring, and its flowers, which are used in potpourri.

Borage has been used medicinally and in the preparation of various cordials and cups. It is thought to have an exhilarating effect. The young leaves are used in salads to which they add a cool, Cucumber flavor. The flowers are used as a garnish and were once preserved and candied.
