A Mediterranean herb and wildflower with star-shaped bright blue flowers in summer from June to September/October. Plants are branched, with hairy leaves, growing to a height of 30 – 60cm. These plants are great for borders, wildflower and herb gardens. The flowers attract lots of pollinators into the garden. This is an ancient culinary and medicinal plant, as the young leaves add flavour to drinks such as Pimms and the flowers make lovely cake decorations and infusions.
Borage is a hardy annual that grows well in sun to part shade and most soils. It combines well with other wildflowers such as Cornflowers and Field Poppies and more formal border plants. Plants self-seed in the right conditions.
