RE: symphytum

Long Island, NY
Zone 7


Do you have a good source for Symphytum 'Goldsmith'?  I tried to get a
plain or variegated comfrey locally for the last few years.  As a last
resort, I begged a division from the personal garden of the head of one
of our nearby arboretums!  He also gave me a low growing , nonnative
yellow blooming comfrey which I don't have a name for.  I was really
looking for the variegated comfrey.  He warned me that comfrey can
spread, so I'll have to be watchful!  He had it planted in a shady area
of his herb garden and it looked lovely in spring!

I have Symphytum 'Goldsmith' as well as theplain Comfrey.  It's
much like your Axminster, but doesn't get tall as your picture showed.
yes, a big slug favorite.  Sounds like you took a bit of a beating from
weather, too.  Seems we all have in one way or another.
