I saw this lovely bushy plant in San Ramon, CA. Has several bloomstalks, but it has not opened yet. Anyone knows its name?

Looks like Acanthus mollis, bear's breeches. I've had zero luck with this plant, but keep trying. It is gorgeous.

Tarev, In your warm sunny area, this plant will become the next monster to eat your yard. Procede with extreme caution.

Ah not going to plant it here, just curious what it is. It will just burn here inland with our excessive heat during the warmer months.

No it won't. It will LOVE that blazing sun. And then it will eat your yard.
