    hmmmm….but if it was foxglove wouldn’t the flowers all have thin short pedicels?

    Looks more like chelone (turtlehead) to me

    Physostegia virginiana

    While this plant is a native, it isn’t a well behaved one.

    Spreading by underground stolons this thug can rapidly fill a flower-bed and take years of diligent efforts to eradicate.

    I’d plant this beauty off in a bed alone, and treat it like mint.
