Borage (Borago officinalis), also known as a starflower, is an annual herb in the borage or forget-me-not family (Boraginaceae).
It is native to the Mediterranean region and has naturalized in many other parts of the world.
The plant is used in herbal medicine and the leaves are edible. It is also commercially cultivated for borage seed oil extracted from its seeds.
The original illustration featured on the mug was first published in 1878 in "Familiar wild flowers figured and described" by Frederick Edward Hulme (1841-1909).
Frederick Edward Hulme was a teacher and an amateur botanist. He was the Professor of Freehand and Geometrical Drawing at King's College London from 1886.
