A. Flowering Plants
More extensive information on flowering plants can be found in a separate blog post.
B. Borages (BORAGINACEAE)
The plants in this family are noted for their being edged with coarse hairs. The flowers often start pink and turn blue, and are usually in one-sided stalked spikes, which at first are tightly coiled.
C. Viper's-bugloss (Echium vulgare)
This native plant is similar to the stereotype borage, and flowers from May. It is as common on the foreshores of West Sussex as in the countryside.
