Tall perennial native to south Siberia and central Asia. Apparently not commonly cultivated, from online photos I reckon it's in the same general class of asteraceae as Silphium and Telekia, with a strongly upright growth habit and bold leaves. Not the easiest kind of plant to site in a modest-sized garden.
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
