Borage, also known as starflower, bee bush, bee bread, and bugloss, is a medicinal herb with edible leaves and flowers. It's hardy, versatile and you can even apply its seed oils as a topical treatment for eczema. 

In many gardens, borage and sunflowers share the honour of being bee hot-spots. It's not only a favourite plant of the honey bees, but also bumble bees and small, native bees.
