    There’s a few things that look like that ... Sweet Rocket Hesperis Matronalis is the first one that came to mind.

    I think it's a Digitalis species. Possibly lutea?

    Thanks again @Dovefromabove. Should I keep it or take out?

    Thankyou @Asarum. Interestingly I planted digitalis purpurea there a few years ago but they didn’t seem to come back

    I have D. lutea and D. purpurea close together in my garden and now have a hybrid lutea which is flushed with pink!

    @Asarum sounds like a lovely combination 😁

    I agree with D. lutea.
    How can you lie there and think of England
    When you don't even know who's in the team

    They're probably right  :)  
    That's not something I grow ...
