Another plant ID please

HI All   I wonder if anyone might be able to ID this plant arrived as a freeby possibly from birds.  At the moment it only has leaves,no sign of any flower stems. It is growing between a container and a paving slab next to a pond.

 At first I thought it was a foxglove but leaves have wrong texture and now growing wrong shape. The larger leaves are 10" X 5".  The plant is approximately 18"- 20" across Thank you for taking a look.

    It might be a verbascum.  Not the common one (Mullein) - there are lots of other varieties grown in gardens these days which don't have furry leaves and the seeds are so fine they get blown a long way in the wind.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
