I have had this plant for about 6 years and have not been able to find the name. i don't know where it came from, i certainly didn't buy the seeds or plant.

I have a ba~zillion of those blue babies...

Once you get them, you got 'em for a long time..
They reseed prolifically..

They are the prettiest blue flowers though.
They do attrack alot of beneficials...
*and the Japanese Beetle's love them too*
but, it's a good trap crop for anything like that..
Let them eat my borage instead of another plant..

They smell like cucumbers when you ripe a stalk down... they also say the flowers can be eaten and taste like cucumbers, I didn't think so....
buttttttttt..and the fun thing you can do with them is fill up your ice cube tray, drop one or a couple of flowers into each section..freeze them up and then put the cubes into a lemonade or such.
Sooooooooooooooooo pretty....
