Also known as the starflower because of the arrangement of its petals, the flowers have a light cucumber flavour and will stun with their vivid blue petals. Borage seeds contain oils with the highest concentration (20% to 30%) of the fatty acid GLA. Altogether a versatile, attractive and useful herb, add starry blue flowers to salads, drinks, berry desserts for zing. Borage may self sow.
