Residents in Iowa City will have a chance to learn about the weed-suppressing comfrey plant on July 14.

Experts call the plant a landscape work horse, providing mulch, fertilizing and attracting beneficial insects.

The class is free and open to everyone. Attendees will receive rootlets of the plant.
