This plant appeared in my flower garden last year. It has very large (up to 12 inch) leaves. I have let it grow thinking if it bloomed I might have a better indication of what it is. No bloom this year (so far) or last year. I cut it back to about a foot last year. It seems to have a bigger stem or trunk this year. It is too large for where it is. I need to either get rid of it or maybe transplant it.
What is this gigantic plant?

    Is is slightly fuzzy/furry feeling? It looks to me to be a Paulownia tomentosa, which means it’s no good for natives here in Georgia. You could keep it, without letting it reproduce (I believe that’s what the Atlanta Botanical Gardens does with their gigantic specimen).
