Borage (Borago Officinalis)
Also known as Starflower - a naturalized, annual herb native to the Mediterranean.
Borage grows to a height of 60–100 cm, and is bristly over the stems, broad rough wrinkled leaves, and is extremely competitive against weeds. The flowers are complete with five narrow, triangular-pointed petals. Flowers are most often blue.
The seed of borage is similar in size to wheat and is black in colour.
The oil within it contains the richest known source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA, an Omega-6 oil), and is used in pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and cosmetic industries.
