Symphytum × uplandicum ‘Axminster Gold’


Golden-variegated Comfrey

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.506.180


This spectacular specimen plant is a variegated selection of the herb Comfrey. Plants form a large mound of hairy leaves, dark green in colour with a striking creamy-golden edge. Clusters of flowers appear in early summer, in a combination of soft pink and blue. Plants appreciate a rich, moist site in sun or partial shade. Give protection from afternoon sun in regions with hot, humid summers. Clumps may be clipped hard in midsummer to rejuvenate the foliage, if it becomes tired looking. Easily divided in early spring or fall, if desired. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten.
