Beautiful photos. I have ranted about my battle with comfrey before. It is horribly invasive. I know there are some varieties that are not. I hope that is what you have. Cut the blooms quickly after they bloom and do not let it reseed. Never till it. each bit will turn into a new plant. It is enticingly lovely.

@Kassaundra , can you post a pict of the whole comfrey plant??
I've been trying to decide if I have some in the yard - it's supposed to be wonderfully handy to have around with cows.

Sadly mine is a bocking variety so not invasive, I would love the invasive kind, it is one of the best high protein forage for chickens and rabbits!!!! I would want it to take over the whole 1/3 acre the chickens and rabbits inhabit.

Lovely pics as always. The thought that went through my mind on the tendrils.... reckon a "city slicker" would think that's a weird worm? :lol:
