(Symphytum officinale) A beloved plant in the permaculture community, and its strikingly beautiful flowers are adored by pollinators. It is famous for the “chop and drop” method and to create compost. Though it is thought comfrey has to be started by root, we successfully had no problem growing it here from seed and have it ringing around our peach trees. Herbalists use this powerful plant, called “the Master Healer”, topically to help with tissue regeneration and to heal wounds. Containing an anti-inflammatory compound, large amounts of mucilage, sterols and allantoin, it is perfect for topical healing. The Physicians of Myddvai used it to promote the union of bone, and the word “Comfrey” itself is thought to have derived from the Latin confervere meaning to grow together.

Review:

I got a plant from a friend and I didn't know how big it was going to get. It obliterated a daylily planted nearby and has resisted all efforts to remove it from that spot. Any fragment of root left behind will resprout! I dug up everything I could find and moved it to a spot along the north fence, where it has made two vigorous clumps. The original grew back from a root fragment and is now bigger than ever. It has also seeded itself in two other places I don't want it. To its defense, the leaves and flowers are useful in a skin salve I make every year and the flowers are pretty. The leaves make great mulch and compost tea, you can hack down the entire plant with all the roots you can find, use the leaves, and the whole thing will regrow in short order. Repeat as necessary. So be careful where you plant it. Along a far fence row is good. Middle of a flower bed is bad.
