Both leaves and flowers are edible!
For a unique garnish for teas and lemonades, look no further than borage! An easy-to-grow annual with bright blue, edible flowers (they can be candied!) and leaves that have a cucumber-like flavor, borage is considered an herb, but is often grown in vegetable gardens, where its star-shaped blooms attract pollinating bees. Borage is considered a good companion to squash, tomatoes, and strawberries, deterring tomato hornworms and improving the flavor of tomatoes growing nearby. And borage self-sows, so you'll have more next year!
