Flowers: April-July.  Plant in part of full shade.  HxS 45x75cm

Dark red buds open to pale blue and white tubular flowers on this clump forming Comfrey.  The rough-textured green leaves are really weed suppressing and superb ground cover when underplanting shrubs.  Quite evergreen and if it outgrows its allotted space the leaves can be used to make a very good liquid fertiliser.  See also Symphytum ‘Hidcote Pink’, both are ultra hardy.

Care & Maintenance.

As it is evergreen we find it best to tidy in spring, removing any winter damage.  Propagate by splitting pieces from the rhizome, which root readily. *CAUTION Harmful if eaten.
