Symphytum Hidcote Pink

£4.50

Hidcote Pink has pink and white flowers only. A grouping several feet across, in full flower, is a lovely sight. Cut down after flowering to maintain a more managable planting. The connection between the Hidcote comfreys and the famous gloucestershire garden is unclear.
