Meanings: Safety during travel, Money
Despite two thousand years of use in in bone setting, wound care, stomach ailments and garden fertiliser, Comfrey doesn’t feature in the flower dictionaries to which I have access. The symbolic meanings above seem to have older, more folkloric origins Traditionally known as ‘Knitbone’. It is perhaps classified as a medicinal herb and fails to qualify as a flower you might present as part of a bouquet. The tiny hairs on the stems can be quite irritating and it would be counter productive if your beloved were to to spring a rash. Yet Comfrey flowers are a very pretty shade of purple-mauve and it has to be the Swiss Army Knife of garden plants. Comfrey leaves soaked in water make a fantastically stinky garden tonic and chicken wormer. It is superbly beneficial planted under orchard trees, attracting pollinators such as bumblebees and working in other mysterious ways to make everything else more productive.
