Question: is it growing everywhere (like taking over type of thing)?
I wish! We've had the property for 3 years and only discovered the patch this year. It sparsely occupies a very tiny corner of a meadow we spend a fair amount of time on, so I probably would have noticed it.
This is the only evidence I've seen of the species on our 40 acre parcel and it is no more than 10 square yards.
Regardless, I can't make any guarantees on genus or its ability to propagate (or take over).
For that matter, I wasn't even 100% sure it was comfrey when I first found it.
Todd: thanks for the info! I'm hoping to divide this source and use it as a nutrient accumulator for some black locust we're adding to a patch of dismally degraded, highly acidic, clay soil.
