I'm hoping some of our green fingered NR's might be able to help with this, it's a new one to my field

Some of the plants are pushing 6ft tall, the leaves are about 6" x 3" and smooth, other than a row of spines down the central vein on the underside and tiny ones on the edges. The leaves are opposing (rather than paired).
I think I have rules out teasel as the google pictures all seem to show more wrinkly and a longer more tapered/pointy leaf. Its def not fat hen, much bigger than that. Wild or prickly lettuce are still in the lead but I'm not sure?

It looks like some kind of brassica, maybe rape? Although I’ve never seen rape close up and I don’t think it grows to six foot.

I shall ponder some more, but nope for now I’m stumped.

I agree. Evening Primrose only has single flowers though that was the first thing I thought of. Show us the flowers and we’ll see what we can do!

We have some at our yard @Jessey buds but no flowers yet, although from the look of the buds it definitely looks like a brassica, no one on our yard knows what it is either!

I can't wait for it to flower now, I had a Google of brassica but can't see any that look right leaf wise, are there many varieties that reach 6ft tall? I noticed tonight that the spikes are all down the stem on smaller plants (didn't check big ones) and it pours out white sap instantly when the stem is cut DSC_2655.JPG
