Herbaceous perennial native to Europe.  True Comfrey is the original herb as detailed in all the ancient literature. Traditional usage (TWM): used externally to speed healing.  Source of alantoin. Plant prefers full sun and regular garden soil.  Good drainage is helpful (add sand and organic matter to clayey soil) and frequent watering is also helpful.  After the plant reaches the late flowering stage, simply cut it back and lay the leaves back down on the crown.  It will regrow through its own mulch.

      Hi Kathy, True Comfrey does best when transplanted in cold soils of early spring or fall. Given your description, I would plant right away. Our soil hasn’t really warmed up yet and the true comfrey is in full flower. We’ll probably have to cut the flowers off of your plants before we ship them! Richo
