Borage White (Borago Officinalis Bianca) - Grow this decorative drought tolerant plant from Borage seeds. Borage herb seeds produce these beautiful star-shaped white flowers and textured leaves. Borage herb benefits include beauty in the garden, attraction for bees and a great addition to summer drinks. Borage Bianca is compact, later flowering and sturdier than standard borage. Excellent in pots and xeriscape gardening as borage is known for its drought tolerance and resistance.

Plant this unusual 24 inch annual drought tolerant herb for its pure ornamental value, to attract much-coveted bees to your garden, and to harvest for teas and other summer drinks. When young, the cucumber flavored leaves may be added to salads. The flowers (which are excellent for cutting and have a long vase-life) are used as garnishes (in cold drinks like ice tea and lemonade) or added to salads. Cut sprays of Borage all summer long to garnish and add flavor to cold drinks and salads! Drought resistant borage plants are also considered to be a great companion plant for vegetable gardens and orchards because of the attraction of bees to the blue flowers. Plant Borage seeds where pollination is needed! Borage is sometimes called Starflower or Bee Bread.

How To Grow Borage From Herb Seed: Direct sow white flowering Borage seeds outdoors in your xeriscape garden after danger of frost has passed. These herb seeds prefer fine, well-worked moist soil. Borage is considered to be a liberal self-sower, dropping its own herb seeds, so you can enjoy more plants next year.
