What about this plant?



We have this plant in our backyard that is a mystery to us. Can you help us identify it? It is tall (almost as big as I am) with these enormous blooms on the top. They don't appear to be fragrant but make the plant look topheavy. If you can help identify this weed, please let us know. Could it have been dropped by aliens???

Oh too funny, aliens huh? Have you heard it whisper "feed me Sue" ? I have no clue what it is, sorry.

<<<laughing at Toodies' "Feed me".
I don't know what that plant is, either, but I snatched a capture of it and I'm going to browse around and see if I can find an answer. Amazing blooms.

Aliens?!? I knew THEY were among us! LOL! I don't know what plant this is any more than anyone else but I'm sure some enlightened soul will figure out this mystery at some point.
