Plant i,d. I have absolutely no idea what this monster of a plant is. It’s so tall. Thought I planted a Thalictrum but must have been mistaken. Any suggestions?

Thalictrums do grow tall - not seen one as tall as that though, but its hard to be sure of the scale of your photo. But their leaves are more like maidenhair fern leaves.

well the leaves are definitely not thalictrum. I was thinking perhaps a Verbena but not sure. there appear to be flower buds forming so we will have to wait and see.

Update; found the label. it's a Althaea Cannabina, or a palm leaf marsh mallow.

That's brilliant news. I was still wondering what it was. Glad you remembered.
