Comfrey Root


Comfrey Root is cut, and sold by the ounce.

Comfrey is also known as Boneset, Knitbone, or Slippery Root, and is an herbaceous perennial plant. The large, hairy, lance-shaped leaves grow in clusters about 12 inches high. It sends up a central stem, which can reach three to four feet in height. The bell shaped flowers appear in clusters on this stem shortly before midsummer. The flowers of wild comfrey vary in color, but are most often yellow. Prickly comfrey may have blue or pink flowers, and Quaker comfrey has purplish flowers.

The rootstock is black outside, fleshy and whitish inside, and contains a glutinous juice. The angular, hairy stem bears bristly, oblong lanceolate leaves, some petioled, some sessile. There are also tongue-shaped basal leaves that generally lie on the ground.

The whitish or pale purple flowers have a tubular corolla resembling the finger of a glove and grows in forked scorpioid racemes from May to August.
