This one is coming up in the middle of a stand of tropical milkweed, which reseeded itself from last year. In fact, I think those are milkweed leaves visible in the photo....

I'm not sure what it is--it doesn't look familiar to me, although it looks very pretty. Just wondering if someone else might recognize it? Confused

I don't know what it is, but you have so many intriguing plants popping up! This one is very attractive.

thanks--I think that's because I severely sprained my ankle last summer and was never able to get out in late summer/early fall to deadhead things... And then in the spring I planted over ground that I thought was bare, while unbeknownst to me there were little tiny seeds everywhere!! nodding

well, it's been kind of fun!! nodding

The flowers buds look like from a Digitalis, but the leaves not..
Maybe Penstemon digitalis?

Foxglove Beardtongue (Penstemon digitalis)

Thank You! Thanks, Bonitin--that might very well be it, as I have had foxglove in that area in the past! The leaves are from the milkweed that is flourishing in that area.

Ah, I see the mystery of the non-matching leaves is solved! Hilarious!
I tip my hat to you.
