A native of southern Europe, grown in gardens for its showy flowers or as a potherb, rarely escaped to cultivated ground and disturbed places. First collected in 1903 in St. Clair Co.
Like Echium, this is bristly-hairy but showy. The flowers of Borago are unusually rotate for this family, while in Echium they are unusual in being bilaterally symmetrical.
