I had 2 of thes pop up in a space at the front of my border. I don't think I planted them but I've potted them pending an ID now or when flowering. Any help much appreciated.

    Do you grow foxgloves?

    I have a lot of Foxgloves and Verbascum but these don't look like those. Thank you for responding @Dovefromabove

    @Tack I wondered if it could be Alkanet

    Thank you for the suggestion, I just looked again, there are not spots on the older leaves which I think Green Alkanet has.

    Could it be a type of sorrel, @Tack?

    Thank you @Woodgreen and @nutcutlet, I think it is Figwort. I never would have come up with that. This site is great for ID help. Thanks all who looked.
