Help needed identifying a wild flower

Hi,

 

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

 

Thanks

 

Andy

    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
