Looks like a verbascum to me, one of the big furry ones of which there are several

That's flowers coming whatever it is.

  • I agree with nut, it is a verbascum.  It's going to get about 5 feet tall once the flower gets going!

    That looks like a very fine verbascum to me too - love it image  Please show us a pic when it flowers.

    I agree with Verbascum. It also looks like one of the big yellow ones, which means it is probably biennial, and so it will die following flowering

    Chuckle!  No, definitely not!!!  Although I have seen self-sown ones do very well on rockeries - they like well-drained sunny spots image

    I would need to see the flowers for that. There are alpine verbascums. 

    Where did you get it? Alpine is 'garden centre speak' for small plant. But they're really plants from the high mountains are some are not small.

    Google alpine verbascums

    That's what I would expect from a GC alpine.

    Most of them. possibly all, are biennials so you haven't got a huge plant there that will take over in time
