I found this gorgeous, seafoam green plant growing at the end of my driveway here in Georgia (zone 7a). The leaves are fuzzy like lamb's ears; it is about 38" across and 12" tall. I haven't seen any blossoms yet, just the foliage. Thank you - I am off to post two more mysteries!

Yes, I think this is probably verbascum thapsus. It flowers in its second year.

.... and if you do not remove the seedpods, you will have many, many new plants the year after.
