Borage; rhymes with Porridge

Borage flowers, they have five pretty blue petals but disturbingly hairy sepals

Or possibly rhymes with mirage? There seem to be mixed ideas about the pronunciation. Anyway, I grew some borage plants from seeds and planted it out, where it promptly took over everything in sight. My sister complained that it was blocking the light coming into the house, so I’ve had to cut it back.
