The photo above is of the herb Comfrey, also known as knitbone. This name derives from its useful property of healing broken bones and wounds; it has even been used by orthopaedic surgeons on complicated bone fractures. This property has been known at least since Roman times, when it was named conferva, meaning to join together. Thanks to Christine's website for this information!
