|-Northeastern Indiana in a mostly bare field. Full, all-day sun.|
I'm not having any luck locating an ID for this plant that just suddenly appeared en masse; maybe you can help? The bud makes me think that I should be familiar with it already, so if I've asked previously, I apologize.

|Moth Mullein (Verbascum blattaria), I think.|

|Thanks, Kent. |
I'd wondered about that one but the site I was looking at didn't offer leaf images. It looks like a match to me.

|One site says, "An extract of moth mullein has been effectively used to control mosquito larvae." http://www.oardc.ohio-state.ed... , so maybe I should add it to my rain barrels. |
...and "Seeds of moth mullein have been found to remain viable for 90 years." (!!) So maybe I'd do well to remove any buds first.
