Botanical Name
Symphytum officinale

Comfrey is a perennial which grows to about 100cm. It grows wild throughout Europe and is most often spotted on the banks of rivers and streams. It has broad green leaves and purple flowers in the summer months.  Comfrey has many medicinal uses and can be made into an ointment for bruising, varicose veins, rheumatism and gout. Its usage stems back to as early as 1653.  Comfrey has deep roots which bring nutrients to the surface but it can also be invasive so it is better added as a foliar feed or compost plant.

*Internal use of comfrey is best avoided as it has been proven to cause liver damage. However it can safely be made into a cream or ointment for external use.
