Symphytum x uplandicum, commonly known as Russian comfrey, is a naturally occurring hybrid (S. officinale x S. asperum) that grows in waste areas and disturbed soils in the Caucasus Mountains. It typically grows in an upright clump to 18-24" tall with flower stems to 4-5'. It features large, oblong to elliptic-lanceolate, medium green leaves (to 14" long at the plant base) and bell-shaped, bluebell-like flowers that appear in drooping clusters (scorpiod cymes) from mid-spring to early summer. From pinkish buds, flowers open up rose but mature to purple. 'Axminster Gold' is a vigorous variegated-leaf cultivar that features striking grayish green leaves with broad yellow leaf margins. It typically grows in a rosette to 18" tall with a spread to 24-30" wide. Clusters of mauve pink bells bloom in late spring to early summer (June-July) atop stems rising from the foliage mound to 4-5' tall.
