Family: Borage (Boraginaceae)
Annual or overwintering annual. 80 days to maturity.
Native to the Mediterranean. This vigorous self-seeder would seem weedy if it were less pretty. As it is, its always a welcome sight in the garden, where it emerges when and where it likes. Children love to eat the nodding, blue and purple flowers that gladden the heart. Plant prefers full sun to part shade and moist soils. Sow in early spring, directly in the garden, and expect flowers by midsummer.
