Symphytum "Goldsmith" The Ornamental Comfreys
This selection is low-growing, forming a clump of coarse light-green leaves, dappled in creamy-yellow. Red buds turn into soft blue hanging bells in early summer. Moist, shady sites suit this best, but this species will even tolerate dry shade conditions. Plants quickly fill in to form a thick, dense groundcover. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring or fall. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten.
