Borage Herb

kalaryder

Singleton Western Australia, Australia

Artist's Description

Borage is actually a somewhat gangly plant, but you barely notice it because the star-shaped flowers are so vibrant. They’re a true blue, hanging in downward facing clusters. Even the fuzzy white buds are attractive. Both the flowers and the leaves are edible, with a cucumber-like flavor. Use the leaves while they are young, because as the plant matures, the stalks and leaves become covered with a prickly fuzz
Photo taken in the old gardens of Como House in Melbourne, Victoria Australia. The flowers in these gardens are ‘old fashioned’ and are said to be the same species as the original gardens.
