History:
Originating in the Mediterranean region, Blue Borage, colloquially called the "Starflower," has graced European gardens since the medieval period. Historically, this plant wasn't just appreciated for its aesthetic appeal; it was highly sought after for its medicinal benefits. Over time, as its culinary potential was uncovered, it seamlessly transitioned from an apothecary's essential to a chef's favorite.

Uses:
The versatility of Blue Borage makes it a staple in both traditional and modern kitchens. Its leaves offer a refreshing cucumber-like taste, finding their way into salads, cocktails, and even certain desserts. But it's not just about taste; the aesthetic appeal is undeniable. The radiant blue flowers are not merely for show; they are entirely edible. Whether used as a garnish atop gourmet dishes or floated in summer cocktails, they add both flavor and a touch of elegance.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:
Blue Borage, in all its beauty, is also a robust plant, adaptable to various conditions. For optimal growth, however, it does favor well-drained soil and locations that receive ample sunlight. When planting, sow the seeds between 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep in the soil, ensuring they are spaced at intervals of around 12 inches. As the plant matures, it reaches heights between 2-3 feet and can spread out, creating a lush, blue-flowered canopy. When integrated into garden layouts, it provides both height variation and a splash of color, making it a visually captivating addition to any garden.
