Flowers: April-July.  Plant in part or full shade.  HxS 45x60cm

This comfrey has red flowers when in tight bud opening to a soft pink.  It was found at Hidcote Manor and can be inter-planted with Symphytum ‘Hidcote Blue’ or variegated forms.  This is a plant which makes excellent weed-suppressing ground cover and is beautiful in association with Pulmonaria.  The evergreen foliage remains throughout even the harshest winter.  If it outgrows its allotted space simply dig up and steep the leaves in water for several days to make an excellent liquid fertiliser.  *CAUTION harmful if eaten. Pot size 1.5 litre.

Care & Maintenance.

You need to keep the plant in check!  Division is simply a matter of pulling pieces apart, they root readily.
