A genus of annuals and perennials, or shrubs and subshrubs in the Boraginaceae family with a wide and cosmopolitan distributio. Commonly known as heliotropes for their habit of tracking the sun with their inflorescences, they generally have simple leaves and clusters of small, often fragrant summer flowers which are attractive to butterflies. Where frost may occur, these plants are best grown in cool or temperate greenhouses. In warmer climates, an outdoor border or a container would make a great spot for their summer flowers!
