Looks like gentiana lutea. What do you think?

Gentiana lutea is native to the mountains in middle- and south europe plus the alps. The plant grows very slowly and flowers for the first time when it is 10 yrs old. It can become 40-60 yrs old. The roots are used as a drug to cure absence of appetite.

Wow, I think you nailed it, Dunkelheit, thank you.

Maybe I can use mullein and and get a similar look in the flower bed outside my kitchen window.  Although I don't think mullein flowers are near as beautiful.

Glad to help. Take a look at a lysimachia punctata or a eremurus robustus. The first one has a similar flower design (the flowers are directly below the leaves at the stem) but she grows only up to 1 meter high. The second one grows 2-3 meters high and flowers yellow, too.
