Comfrey, True (Symphytum officinalis) potted plant, organic

(3 customer reviews)


Family:  Borage (Boraginacea)

Hardy in Zones 3 to 9

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.

Potted plant, Certified Organically Grown

    Grows so quickly it’s amazing (even in this Texas heat). Lovely flowers. Only had for a couple months and already cut back and it’s growing back great. Very pleased.
