COMFREY (SYMPHYTUM OFFICINALE)

8.95

Comfrey is an excellent plant to have on the homestead.  Bees and other pollinators love the purple bell-shaped flowers.  The entire plant is a dynamic accumulator of trace minerals and is often added to compost piles, fed to livestock, planted around fruit trees as a part of permaculture guilds, and cut back and used as a highly nutrient-rich mulch.  Additionally, the plant is an unparalleled vulnerary ( healer of wounds) and is often infused into oil and is a classic addition to all purpose salves. Comfrey can be cut back several times/ season to make use of its properties.  Plant in a place you’d like it to stay, since it is sometimes difficult to remove once establishes, and it will spread.  The leaves are highly nutrative and some herbalists recommend nourishing infusions of the leaves, however the discovery of pyrrolizidine alkaloids have led some to deem it a “low-dose medicinal,” despite its long history of use.  Hardy perennial to Zone 3.
