Notes:

This was purchased to be Royal catchfly plant for a butterfly garden. The leaves do not look like the ones I have found on the internet and it has never bloomed in 3 years. Plant about 4 ‘ tall in mostly full sun.
Any help identifying this would be helpful. Thanks

    looks like you have false nettle, Boehmeria cylindrica

    However, unlike common nettles, it doesn’t sting.
