No garden can ever have enough blue flowers: there just aren't that many of them. And though spring is the peak season for blues in the garden, there's always room for more, even then. Especially when the plant in question is also a fearless groundcover, a "Wow, what is that?" rarity in North America, and an early-season salad green.
These are the sky-blue flowers of early-flowering borage, a woodland groundcover native from the Balkans to the Caucasus. It deserves a place in every garden—and on the table for an Easter feast.
