 Hi everyone- I'm new to this forum. Does anyone know what this plant is? It is a year old and has just produced this bendy flower spire which has dark red tiny flowers on. It is about 7 in high and its rosette is about the same.

thank you

    Its a verbascum? Oh wow - thought they were bigger than that.  Thanks nutcutlet.

    I was trying to put another pic on GillyL but for some reason it's not giving me the option to select from my computer.

    Looks like a verbascum to me Victoria. A couple more pics would confirm  (or not). Couldn't say which one.

    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver
