I would love some help identifying this very tall plant that doesn't seem to fit in.
We are in AZ, near Phoenix. The plant is pushing 7 feet tall at this point, and doesn't seem to be slowing. I've never seen anything like it. No flowers/blossoms yet.

Tree Tobacco?

Perhaps. Every search I do for that show close ups and bunched plants, all with flowers. I guess I'll have to wait for the flowers to show up.
Thank you

I agree with Carol, Nicotiana glauca looks like a good match.
