Symphytum officinale, also known as Common Comfrey, is a perennial herb that can grow up to a height of 60 cm. It features 8-inch leaves covered in prickly hairs and nodding clusters of yellowish white, pink, or purplish flowers. Although native to Europe, Common Comfrey has been introduced to North America and is sometimes considered a weed. The plant has been used in traditional medicine as a poultice for treating burns and wounds, but internal consumption is discouraged due to concerns about liver damage. The peeled roots can be added to soups, and a tea can be made from the dried leaves and roots. Comfrey is also prized for its attractiveness to bumblebees, and it offers a significant source of nectar per flower. While young leaves and shoots can be eaten raw or cooked, their hairy texture and strong taste may not be to everyone's liking.
