Symphytum officinale

A perennial valued for its herbal properties and as an activator in compost, helping other plant material decompose more quickly. The leaves and roots contain allantoin (a hormone-like substance that stimulates cell division) and have been used as an external poultice for bruises sprains and broken bones over centuries, hence the other common names of bruisewort, knitbone and boneset. 15 seeds.
