River Severn

The banks of the River Severn are colourful with flowers at present – comfrey, red Campion, Garlic Mustard, Cow Parsley and others. Much of the comfrey we see locally is Russian Comfrey Symphytum x uplandicum which is a hybrid between Common Comfrey (Symphytum officinale) and the introduced Rough Comfrey (Symphytum asperum).
