I got this plant from a friend, but she didn't know the name. It's a low (less than 1 foot) , spreading one

maybe Symphytum grandiflorum? This one stays low as I have seen it in my brother's garden.

Myriam, you might be right. It looks a lot like the S. grandiflorum.
I got this plant from a friend and she lives, just like me, near the German border, so I tried to find the plant in the 'Bildatlas der Farn- und Bl├╝tenplanzen Deutschlands', but all the white and low growing Symphytums had different leaves. And the leaves of this plant look similar to my plant.
