    Borage
    Its a flower, herb, green manure, bee plant, weed - depends on your point of view.

    Hi, It is a beneficial plant as it attracts bees and is good to look at. On the other side it self seeds and can become a real pain. A plotholder by me sowed some and it has spread like wildfire so before it sets seed nip the flowers out when they die back. I grows strong and tall. Very good if kept under control.
