     Echium pininana - was it anything like that?

  • The height  of yours is taller and the leaves were at the base and the green leaves on yours might of been there but just looked like flower buds but was on a bus so didnt get a good look at it.

  • I live on the wirral 6 hours away from minehead, is there anyone who lives near the bus route to butlins minehead

  • Could it be a mullion, verbascum ?

    I'd have thought it would be hard to see 'serrated leaves' on something the size of a mullein from a bus window image
