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

Native to Europe and Asia, naturalized throughout much of the U.S.

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
