Common Comfrey grows as high as 1.5m. Its flowers are 12-18mm long, tubular-bell-shaped, purple, pink or white. The edges of the flower are slightly upturned as 5 tiny lobes. These flowers are in branched, coiled clusters and are borne on erect, hairy, stems with down-pointing, tapering hairs & wings which continue from one leaf axil to next. The upper leaves are clasping, oval and hairy. The basal leaves are large, oval-lanceolate, stalked, untoothed and softly hairy. It grows in damp grassland, by riverbanks, waste ground and on marshes. It is a scattered perennial, probably introduced and belongs to the Borage family.
I first saw this plant and photographed it in 2012 near Slade, Co Wexford.
