- Part Sun/Shade
About This Plant
Partial sun. Long-lived and enduring. An herbaceous perennial with a tidy mound of foliage and big, feltlike borage leaves. Like few other garden plants, comfrey is considered nearly indestructible once established, but it will freeze back to the roots every winter. Comfrey was traditionally used as a ‘knit-bone’ and applied to fractures and wounds. In the garden, comfrey is considered a great accumulator of nitrogen and other nutrients, and a great addition to compost and liquid fertilizer.
Can be cut back as needed after freezes.
