Hidcote Blue Comfrey

Hidcote Blue Comfrey

Hidcote Blue Comfrey is an amazing shade dweller that adds new life to darkened corners of the landscape with clusters of true blue flowers accented in white. The blooms appear in late spring to early summer, adding beauty and attracting charming butterflies to the area. Plus it forms a low-growing, weed-resistant carpet of rich green foliage to boot. The perennial plants are drought resistant, and with their early-season bloom time, make ideal companions for daffodils. Plant in sun-dappled borders or feature beds to illuminate shadowy sites.
