Seed came from a trade. The species is almost certainly misnamed, since there are no online references for this Verbascum. I'll try to get a proper name for this once I have full-grown plants.
Update in August: the plants are now flowering, on spikes filled with buttery yellow flowers. They look not unlike the V. nigrum we grew some years ago.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
