Kent, when I saw the name Verbascum, I hit myself in the forehead.
It's been driving me nuts. I have grown Verbascum Phoeniceum, which is one of my favorite plants, and I knew that I had seen this same sort of growth on this plant. I just couldn't remember the name. Mine doesn't look exactly like the ones in the photos, but I would say that it is probably the same plant, or very close to it. I'll do my best to get a picture of the entire plant tomorrow. As soon as I took these photos, we had to head to town. It's been pouring down raining since. I'll post an additional photo, since I'm not 100% sure.
