Nicotiana tobacum "Virginia tobacco" -- this plant can grow up to 7ft tall with huge leaves. It is amazing that more people don't grow this as an ornamental. Also has pink flowers that attract the hummingbird, and the hummingbird moth.

Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) ~ these are easy to grow and so showy, but are toxic if ingested; this is where the cardiac drug digitalis comes from. Lovely aren't they?
