It self seeded and came up as a rosette of leaves towards the end of summer. I assumed it was a foxglove but now it is flowering with flowers that look similar to nicotine plant flowers - trumpet shaped.
Rather a bad pic take through the window because I don't want to get wet...

Does it have waxy leaves? The photo isn't clear but the flowers look like it could be a sedum.

Sorry, yes the closer ones are sedums! The one I'm not sure of is the white one above. Not sure why I though everyone would be mind readers... I'll get out when it's dry and take a better pic.

That is what I thought. Been googling tobacco plants and it doesn't exactly match any of the images, but the flower really does look like it. Apparently the species one will self seed but it's certainly come from a neighbours garden because I don't grow them. I will pop out when I get home and see if it smells.

I think it is nicotinia.

PlantSnap gives it as a Nicotiana Hybrid.
