Help needed identifying a wild flower



Could anyone help me identify the wild flower from the attached pictures? It has tube like flowers that start with red sepaled buds which then become white with a blue base. The leaf might suggest a member of the mint familly but it also looks similar to the nightshades. It was found in Surrey a few days ago by some mixed woodland but also bordering a path which was close to some gardens

    Hi Andy B this wild flower is Comfrey of which there are a few different species this looks like common Comfrey

    nice photos and good information on locality etc . This flower grows near woodland and hedgerows/woodland paths but will grow in other places too hope this helps. Also I believe it makes a very good fertilizer
