A nice plant

A good population of this in East Lothian - for me one of the nicer plants of Spring.

I hope the militant anti-alien crowd don't deem it an "invasive species".

Symphytum 'Hidcote Blue'

I grow this in my garden on the Undercliff, it is one of the first perennials to come into flower and although it is invasive I love it.

I cut it back each summer with a rotary mower and the blades set high and it always makes a good recovery!
