    OK - can anyone identify this plant, which was growing in a garden we inherited?? Might be a weed....

    Thanks!

    Not certain - but it does have that weedy look about it. Is there only the one? If that's the case, let it grow (and if no one is able to ID it in the meantime) until it flowers and then post a second pic. If it turns out to be a weed, you can then cut the flowers off / pull the plant so it won't reproduce.

    I'd go with foxglove or primula.

    Actually probably not foxglove.

    Ha - I had a local botanical fellow come over, and he thinks it's borage, which makes lots of sense as this is from an Italian garden.... So there you go!!
