    Hello in Oregon!
    I have really enjoyed my Comfrey plants. So have my Honeybees! I’m a little late on this review, because it has been a while since I ordered them! Nonetheless, I’m very well pleased with them! Thank you!

      I have heard that comfrey “melts” in S. Florida so would put it to a cooler spot if you can find one. However,
      I personally have never seen comfrey “melt” and we do get 110 degree days throughout August. I like all weather, looking forward to it, long-live comfrey!

      Hi, I have heard that Comfrey “melts” in FL and that’s why I’ve put the maximum temp at Zone 8. As an almost unstoppable grower, though, I assume you could keep one in the shade. It will grow anywhere from sand to swamp. richo
