imageHi just found this at the back of the border - can anyone advise what it could be, if you brush the leaf it has quite a strong scent...

    It looks like a foxglove to me.  I'm sure others will confirm one way or the other shortly. x

    Hi Peanuts3 it has a waxy feel to the leaf, think foxgloves have a furry texture? image

    Not foxglove. I can't recall what it is , but someone else will. image

    There are some foxgloves which don't have the furry leaves - Digitalis lutea for instance ... it does look very foxglove-like ... the flower will soon be out ... that'll tell us image

    I'm interested in the scented leaves. I don't know any foxglove that has those.
