    Is it actually a Verbascum?

    No 100% it's a foxglove, I'm posting this on my phone, not giving me the option to post pic

    Sorry Lynn, my ID was for Will's pic. I should have been less hasty with my reading and noticed it wasn''t yoursimage.

    There's a thread on here somewhere about fasciation, I'll see if I can find it. Foxgloves are very prone.

    There are of course yellow Foxgloves, and there are Foxgloves, where the flower tube is split into petals, so maybe that is it.

    You wouldn't know a diamond if you held it in your hand
    The things you think are precious, i don't understand

    Looks like verbascum bananas and custard. Is there a photo of the whole plant?'
