The white-flowered variety, in particular, has gained popularity for its aesthetic appeal and subtle flavor. Throughout history, White Borage has been esteemed for its various applications, from culinary garnishes to herbal remedies.

Culinary Uses:
White Borage is often used as an edible garnish, adding a delicate touch to salads, desserts, and beverages. The flowers have a mild cucumber-like flavor, making them a refreshing addition to dishes. They can also be candied or frozen into ice cubes for decorative purposes. Additionally, the leaves of the borage plant are edible and can be used in salads or cooked as a leafy green. With its subtle flavor and attractive appearance, White Borage adds a unique flair to culinary creations.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:
White Borage thrives in a sunny to partially shaded location with well-drained soil. Sow seeds directly into the garden after the danger of frost has passed, as borage does not transplant well. Plant seeds approximately 1/4 inch deep and space them 12-18 inches apart. Keep the soil consistently moist until germination, which typically occurs within 7-14 days. Once established, borage is a low-maintenance plant that requires minimal care. It will self-seed readily, so be mindful of its spread if you wish to control its growth. Enjoy the delicate beauty and versatile uses of White Borage in your garden.
