Here are three lovely blue flowering herbs that will look great amongst your beds and borders:
Bugle weed – Ajuga reptens – which is a low growing creeping perennial with blue flowers in late spring to early summer. It only reaches 6 inches and will spread quite quickly. It prefers a moist, fertile soil and does best in light shade although it will grow successfully in sun as long it is kept well watered. It can get invasive, so don't plant it close to other plants.
Borage -Borage officinalis - is an annual that will grow to 1-2 foot tall. It has quite prickly but furry grey/green leaves and will grow well in a sunny spot preferring well drained soil. Bees adore it. But be warned it very easily self seeds!
Common flax - Linum usitatissimum is a plant that is easy to grow.
It is a hardy annual that prefers a sunny spot with well drained soil. It is good for the back of borders and beds as it grows from 1-4 foot. Bees love its flowers which last all summer.
