Can someone identify this plant. It sprung from nowhere; probably a gift from the many birds that frequent our garden. The flowers are very popular with Bees.
It is taller than a foxglove; over 4 feet tall.
The stalk is formidable; stronger than foxglove, Hollyhock, etc.
It is alone; hence my suspicion that a bird gifted me a seed that has taken.
Thanks in advance!

I am now the proud ex-owner of a Himalayan balsam! Thanks to you and a wheelie bin bag, it has been revoved.
No trace of a partner or seedlings. I will keep my eyes open.
An amazing weed; shame. My bees might be depressed.
