The Crambe cordifolia looks most promising so far. I had already checked for Giant Hogweed and I really don't think it is that. The leaves are the wrong shape and my flower stem is pure green, not streaked darker as is Giant Hogweed.
Can you advise on how to support the flower stems because they are so heavy they are falling over, even before the buds get to full flowering?
Thank you

Another vote for this plant being Crambe cordifolia but not 100% sure.

"Giant hogweed has much bigger, divided leaves and the flower head would be much more umbellate. Could be wrong though - let’s see what others say"

Another vote for "Crambe cordifolia, methinks, as featured on our garden pic of the day."
