Symphytum grandiflorum Hidcote Blue

Creeping Comfrey Hidcote Blue

Sprays of hanging tubular bells start to open from tight pink buds in mid Spring. Symphytum grandiflorum Hidcote Blue is an excellent low growing deciduous perennial, well suited as groundcover for banks and slopes, and as an edging plant anywhere in almost any soil, as long as its fertile and partly sunny. Creeping Comfrey Hidcote Blue will spread in time, suppressing surrounding weed growth with its tightly packed cushion of hairy dark green leaves. Considered a very low maintenance plant. Symphytum grandiflorum Hidcote Blue is a valuable early provider for bees and perfect for the wildlife garden. Can be an invasive plant in the wrong place but makes excellent groundcover in difficult shady spots.
