Good reminder for borage. I trie it from seed but it didn't work. Was the order of the annuals in order of popularity?

The order was indeed by popularity. I was surprised to see Borage at the very top.

I love the plant but it sure struggles in our hot summers.

Interesting. I wonder if everyone posted their own order how different it would be. I know I would have violas and cornflowers at the top

Interestingly you never posted a comment to the DB about either of them, though, so for these kinds of articles you're not really "voting." I'd encourage you to post something about both and that'll help drive them up the rankings in future articles and things like that.
