(Borago officinalis) Besides being extremely easy to grow, very hardy and edible, this flower, like Lime Green Nicotiana, virtually glows. Reminiscent of a shooting star in shape and a mild cucumber in taste, borage will produce continuous flower clusters that we and the bees both adore. The flowers, which are said to induce courage, open blue and slowly turn purple and then pink before they drop. Young leaves are also edible. Borage will survive light frosts and will self sow. 2’ bushy plants.
