Is comfrey native to Illinois?

Does anyone have a picture of this? I want to plant it and wonder if I already have it at my farm.

Comfrey proper (Symphytum officinale) is Eurasia, but wild comfrey (Cynoglossum virginianum) is native to the US.

I did a search and found the link below. It tells where it is...seems to me it would be found in IL.

Here is a link that might be useful: about wild comrey
