Looks like foxglove: http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/wildseed/27/27.4.html
hmmmm….but if it was foxglove wouldn’t the flowers all have thin short pedicels?
Looks more like chelone (turtlehead) to me
Yep,I see the pedicels on the Foxglove link I shared but none on the turtlehead. Yummy, more crow!
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.
Ah, more lessons learned and crow for two please!
I’ll have a heaping helping Stone!
Isn’t this a nice photo of an Obedient Plant?
