Are these giant forget me nots?

Hello gardeners, 
These large leafed plants have been springing up all over my garden this year and I'm not certain what they are? Are they forget me nots? It's just the leaves seem to be too large - I thought forget me nots we're daintier? They seem also to be prone to done kind of white/grey leaf mould? Any help or suggestions appreciated.

    No-they're-not. Looks more like comfrey.

  • Comfrey ... or very lush foxgloves maybe?

  • Many thanks for the replies, I've searched comfry online and the flowers look similar to those that appeared earlier in the year so it's now got a name. 
    Thanks again. Really helpful
