I'm very interested in this plant. No signs of drought stress, no bug damage, no disease ...

I'm guessing it's Macleaya cordata, Plume Poppy Plume Poppy (Macleaya cordata)

Thanks, Monica!

It looks like an extract of this plant can be used as a non-synthetic fungicide. No wonder it looks so healthy!
