Symphytum grandiflorum | Creeping Comfrey
To be honest we are not 100% sure if this is the name of this variety of Comfrey but after some reading, it best describes the plant that we were given - the person who gave it to us did not know the variety either!
We call it a dwarf comfrey and as its name suggests, it will creep through the areas where you plant it. We use it under fruit trees and also as a ground cover in some of our bigger spaces in the garden that need filling as the bees just cant get enough of it and for us that is reason enough. We find it does not spread rampantly and we have found that it is not as deep rooted as our big Comfrey and we find we can easily dig it out if we want to move it and no new bits seem to sprout and if they do they appear to be easily removed and relocated or we use it in our Comfrey tea that we make with sheep manure and use on our garden plants.
We also have the big leaved Symphytum variety which you can find here
