This was in a bouquet of flowers a friend gave me from her garden.
I haven't the slightest idea what it is!

UPDATE 25 Feb 2021: Digitalis x 'Honey Trumpet'

Something in "old" Scrophulariaceae, Antirrhinum perhaps?

Brugmansia, perhaps. The blooms look like they would be pendant. Don't eat them, Andrea. :)
Best regards,

Doesn't look as it belongs to Solanaceae. My guess is some kind of snapdragon.

I threw your picture at PlantNet and it came up with these foxgloves, which I have to say look very like your flower:


Digitalis obscura L.

Plantaginaceae
Willow-leaf foxglove



Digitalis grandiflora Mill.

Plantaginaceae
Large yellow foxglove



Digitalis lutea L.

Plantaginaceae
Straw foxglove

Bernard, that's what I thought, I mean it looks like a foxglove to me, but Birna says not.

Dificult to pin down the genus given only a picture of the (lovely) flowers -- my nod goes to something in the "old" Scrophulariaceae. That would include Digitalis, but also a number of related genera.

The Honey trumpet is another type of foxglove - but as it's a hybrid I'm sure that Andrea wouldn't have stooped to photographing it ...

I think that is what it is, like Birna said "digitalis".

PlantsFoxgloves→Foxglove (Digitalis 'Honey Trumpet')
Careful though: "flowers and leaves are highly toxic, and this plant should not be grown in areas frequented by children."

Oh Bernard ! {me laughing}......I photograph EVERYTHING !!!

Cadmium, I think you have found the ID. It does indeed seem to be a yellow foxglove. I am not at all familiar with yellow for foxgloves. It's true I mostly know the wildflowers, and wild foxgloves are mostly pinkish spotted flowers.

I will pursue this Honey Trumpet flower for my ID.

Thank you to everyone for their input.



Notes

Antirrhinum: The open "butterfly" snapdragon flowers are erect, and the open end doesn't look like this.

Brugmansia: Couldn't find any which looked like this at all.

Digitalis obscura: Seems to be the wrong colour (reddish-orange more on the red side) and have the wrong inside patterning (dark red streak).

Digitalis grandiflora: Does have the internal veining, but again the colour is too pale.

Digitalis lutea: Seems to be too pale of a yellow and have too large a lower lip.

Xera Nursery originated the Digitalis x 'Honey Trumpet' plant. Rather, their bees did.
