Blue Comfrey (also known as comphrey) is a native herb in Britain and has long been known as a medicinal herb, and it was cultivated by the Greeks and Romans for its powerful properties. It has a myriad of uses, and Comfrey is one of the most useful plants you can grow in your garden.
Comfrey or Symphytum 'Hidcote Blue'makes a wonderful natural fertilizer and compost activator when steeped in water, can be grown as an animal feedstuff, and poultices of the leaves can be applied externally to ease bruising and sprains.
It is important to note that Comfrey is not to be taken internally as it could cause liver damage.
This hardy perennial 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. The red buds in spring open to blue flowers with plain green foliage and will attract bees to your garden.

Very well-packaged, arrived without a problem at all. Excellent plant quality, healthy and quick-growing. Good size (small enough to ship but large enough to plant out immediately.) Overall, extremely pleased!
