Plant ID please. My friend has these in her garden and I rather like them, hopefully not a weed.




Looks like comfrey.

It is comfrey Symphytum officinale, I also have this pinky form. It is good in shade and spreads quite quickly but pulls up easily and composts beautifully.

This I put in water in a barrel as it is a good form of fertiliser.
