I received this seed labeled as a Verbascum with a very long species name. 18" tall and perennial. Any thoughts?

Does not look anything like my verbascum, but I am new to foxglove-so no help there.

You're right Poppysue it is a good site, I had barely looked at it until you mentioned it (sheepish grin). I'm not convinced about his close up of D lanata though!
