I recently Discovered this species of variegated Comfrey on the Allotments, and im just trying to work out which type of variety it might be! It could be Symphytum officinale or x uplandicum Comfrey, but dont know. It has mid-bright yellow edged leaves, leaves similar to either the 2 Comfrey species stated.

    Likely ID
    Variegated Russian Comfrey (Symphytum x uplandicum 'Variegatum')
    Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.
