What is this? It's a volunteer that has grown to be rather sizeable and is in a sunny location. Someone suggested it was a daisy but it has shown no signs of flowering. TIA for any help.

It may be a biennial plant which forms a basal rosette of leaves its first year, and flowers the following year.

Do you recognize the foliage as any particular plant?

It looks like the Meadow Daisy or Oxeye Daisy.
It starts out looking like the base of the plant you have shown, and next year it might look like this plant from the Database.

I think HemNorth is on the right track. My first thought was Shasta Daisy, another Leucanthemum very similar to Leucanthemum vulgare.
