I believe that I started this from seed a few years ago, and that it was a packet of "mixed verbascum." This is the first year that it has been big enough for me to even remember its existence. I am leaning toward V. chaixii 'Album' as a probable cultivar. Does anyone have an idea about this?

Thank you Bamira. How can you tell the difference, is it the leaves? I'm not very good at this ID thing.

Ah, thank you! Maybe one day I'll be able to get these right myself, but in the meantime, I sure do appreciate the knowledge of you sleuths on the ID forum.
