Can You Identify These 2 Perennial Plants?

Its medicinal properties are interesting and given its rapid growth and determination; it's very likely that I could become entrepreneurial and sell it as compost and as an alternative medicine - as I will never be short of supply - haha!

I will tolerate it (despite its continuous mocking!) if only to entertain the bees. 

Thank you for all your help and guidance. To visitors - I will now refer to it as Comfrey and refrain from the use of any expletives - haha!

I do love Thyme...but Sage is one of my absolute favourite garden plants. 

This Comphrey loves just about any conditions. I've cut it back, dug out the roots and even placed a roof tile over the top of it...and it still managed to make an appearance. Aside from entertaining the bees and making compost...I see no other positives to having this plant in my garden. They should rename it Comp-fiend!! haha.

Great advice Nutcutlet...I may need to consider this, but the Rosemary is well established and it is one of my garden favourite along with the Sage plant. It's an unusual choice to many - but I would fill my garden with Sage - it has the most amazing scent and the most beautiful flowers...I don't know why more people don't grow this. I love it...as do all the wildlife.

Thank you 'Bilje' - I think I could open up a compost factory at the speed in which it shoots up after I've cut it back. I'll keep your advice to hand, as I'll need to find some purpose for all the cuttings I get from it. It is my garden nemesis. haha!

Thank you 'Fidget Bones' and 'Nut Cutlet' too. It has been bothering me not knowing what it is and I didn't know where to start. Random google descriptions did not help, but I know I could rely on the gardening world forum - I don't know why I didn't come here sooner. 

I really have no idea how to remove it from my Rosemary patch which contaminating the herbs. I prune the Rosemary back and dug as much of the Comfrey root out as I could...but the little bugger came back to spite me this spring! haha! I have a fondness for the bees, who seem to swarm this species, so I guess I'll just have to tolerate it and prune it back when it starts to go wild!
