It looks like some kind of mullein, Verbascum, but I don't know what kind precisely. I'm not aware of one that grows that tall, either, so I might very well be wrong in my guess! Quite a statuesque plant there. Smiling

Looks a lot like Dense Mullein (Verbascum densiflorum) which can grow 4 to 5 feet and the flower stalks grow tall too.

I agree I agree, the flowers are very small, maximum 1 inch
Verbascum phlomoides or Verbascum densiflorum the flowers have large 2 inch I tip my hat to you.

is greater

Welcome, I am not much good at identifying plants, but as you can tell there are some folks on here that are very good at it.
