My friend is wondering if this is something she p!anted or if it's a weed. I know I've seen it before but can't think where or what.
No smell and a very thick stem.
It looks a bit like shasta daisy
Not shasta. I've been out weeding round mine today, wrong leaves! It's annoying me, I recognise it but I can't place it!
Shall I shout it a bit louder .... it looks to me like MELIANTHUS!!!

Thank you so much folks. I won't take the credit when I tell my friend. It's funny because everyone I have asked recognised it but couldn't name it. MELIANTHUS it is then, Dovefromabove. ?
The mystery is solved now that the plant has flowered. Stem over 6ft tall and lots of buds away to flower. It's a ....... Scabious!
Head away to flower looks bigger in this photo.

Beautiful. Leaves were very confusing. This one is Cephalaria Gigantea, the giant scabious.
