what is it?

I thought this might be a foxglove, because of veins in leaves going to tip - but now see it must be something else, but what?
should I keep it?

    Foxglove. :)
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • thanks, I'll leave it there and watch with interest! - if so, I'll be glad I left it; I live somewhere where I feel a bit 'overlooked' and potentially criticised for leaving the 'wrong' plants in.

    It’s your garden ... you enjoy it your way and grow the plants you like ... there’s no right or wrong ... if anyone says there is just send them to us ... we’ll put them right 😉 👍

    Who is criticising you @catherine172?
    If it's your garden - it's no one's business but yours what you grow.  :)

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    thanks, folks - it isn't technically my garden - I live in a flat, and it's a bed I've tended (in a community area which was not looked after at all for many a long year) - since c 2000 - in 2014 I came back from a trip away to find the owner (not the resident) (thankfully no longer the owner) of the flat next door had cleared it.  Long story.  I love having herbs to pick like mint and bay and sage as well as roses and so on.  And I want/need to be organic and roundup free etc.
