Borage

Borago officinalis has startlingly lovely blue star-shaped flowers, which become deep blue grown on stonier soils. Charming by the wayside, it is not a plant for the border unless you are a more resolute gardener than us, as it sets seed promiscuously and mildews disappointingly in late summer.

Both the flowers and the leaves taste of cucumber, and you may use the finely chopped leaves as you would any other rustic green, such as chard or nettles.

Borage greens are a classic component of the English summertime drink of Pimms; the flowers are delightful frozen in ice cubes. Borage is a remedy for melancholy, with or without the Pimms.
