    Plant is shaped like a hosta, but I don't think it is unless it's another variation. Leaves arent hard like hosta

    Looks like Lamb's Ear to me. Without the fuzz on the foliage.

    I agree as this plant is a perennial and was a pretty popular thing around old home settings. I have a few older customers that prefer this plant. It is of the old times garden setting.

    Looks to me like it could be a rather large, older foxglove: perennial/biannual depending on the variety, easy self-seeders...

    +1 but it seems too big. Could be a naturalized version. I have seen that happen with other perennials.
