So, this started to pop up early in between a huge salvia and a patch of cone flowers. Hasn't grown much, only very slowly (might be due to very mild spring and early summer here in the Chicago burbs). No idea what it is.....any thoughts?

Can't place it at the moment, but definitely not foxglove.

Sue, are you thinking of Primrose?

They look like foxgloves to me too. I was just trying to see what Sue was seeing that I wasn't. Confused

Hey you know, I JUST remembered that we had tried a foxglove in that area last year! Completely forgot about that! I think we may have solved the mystery!
