 Caucasian Comfrey (Symphytum Caucasicum) Herb in 1L Pot

Caucasian Comfrey (also known as comphrey)was cultivated by the Greeks and Romans. It has a myriad of uses, and Comfrey is one of the most useful plants you can grow in your garden. This hardy perennial produces an abundance of erect stems up to 60cm to 1m in height, bearing large lance-shaped leaves and nodding tubular bright blue flowers in summer. It will flourish in almost any soil type and situation, and as it is such a vigorous plant, it needs very little encouragement to grow well. This particular variety prefers full sun but will tolerate part shade. Caucasian Comfrey will attract bees and other pollinators to your garden.

Herb Usage

Comfrey has long been known as a medicinal herb, and it was cultivated by ancient civilisations for its powerful properties. Comfrey was historically used to treat a wide variety of ailments ranging from bronchial problems, broken bones, sprains, arthritis, gastric and varicose ulcers, severe burns, acne and other skin conditions. Today Comfrey is almost solely grown for its ornamental properties and for its use as a wonderful natural fertilizer and compost activator when steeped in water it is a must have for the organic gardener. 

It is important to note that Comfrey is not to be taken internally as it could cause liver damage.
