Borage (borago officinalis) is a bushy herb with bright blue edible flowers. The plant has been used to attract bumble bee pollinators to garden plots. The leaves can be used sparingly to add a cucumber-like flavor in salads, or for flavoring cool drinks. Plants fade in deep summer heat and humidity, but can be reseeded for late summer/early fall harvest.
