    It appears to be a giant variated weigler or butterfly bush. Is it very messy to keep it cleaned up? I'm 90% sure, Never seen one that big though...

    That looks like a giant Buddhelia............biggest I have ever seen!!!!!
    I have the Butterfly bush's planted around my house, the never ever get the chance to get that big. I am getting tired, so a bottle brush plant could be the one also..
    Sorry for highjacking this thread, as Florida has some varieties that I don't know!!
    Good Luck!!
