I found this growing in my flowerbed, and left it, thinking it might be a flowering plant worth keeping.
Could anyone identify if it's a weed or not?
I can see some buds forming, as seen in the 2nd photo. There is some lavender behind it.
thank you very much
SOLVED: Wondering what this is, should I keep it?
This looks like Verbascum, wait for the flowers and display once again.
Thanks so much, I will update with a flower picture when the buds open.
Looks like a Nicotiana to me. I am only familiar with growing Nicotiana alata.
Look at Nicotiana tabacum because if the coloring. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Nicotiana_tabacum_0838.jpg
Looks like Nicotiana tabacum, thank you! The open flower is white.
Verbascum and Nicotiana are relatives
The plant displayed is certainly Nicotiana tabacum
