SYMPHYTUM OFFICINALIS Comfrey is among the most important medicinal herbs. They contain allantoin, a hormone-like substance that stimulates cell division, making the comfreys valuable for healing wounds, ulcers and broken bones. Tea and poultices of leaves or roots are used. Comfreys are nutritional herbs, rich in calcium, potassium, phosphorus, vitamins and trace elements. Important fodder and green manure crop as well. Of easiest culture; can be grown indoors or out. PLEASE NOTE: Due to low level concentrations of pyrrolizidine alkaloids found in the leaves and roots, comfrey should not be used internally. These alkaloids are reported to have caused liver damage when consumed over a long period of time. External use is safe, however, because the offending alkaloids are not absorbed through the skin. Variety known and used for centuries. Purple, rose or white flowers.
