White Comfrey
Symphytum orientale

This shot was taken on The Puffing Billy Track in Havant, Hampshire. White comfrey is also known as such things like Knitbone, Boneset, Bruisewort and Ass Ear but to name a few. It is a robust plant with broad leaves up to 30cm long, which taper into a point. The leaves begin as a rosette from the ground, have a rough texture, and are covered with short stiff hairs. The rosette supports a tall, erect flowering stem up to 1.5m tall, with bell-shaped mauve or white flowers which curve downwards that flower between May and July.
