I have two of this plants, have never seen anything like them before and believe they probably started from seeds that came in with some hay. It's about two feet tall, just starting to bloom.

Finally found it. Decided that it would be just my luck if it was a noxious weed.. so I took a look at the noxious weed list for my state and sure nuf!
Here is the name: Hyoscyamus niger L. black henbane
Sounds like it can be particularly nasty.. has quite a few livestock deaths attributed to it. Does have some uses as a medicinal. However, the two I have on my property will be going into the compost pile tomorrow. Just glad I found them before they seeded. Sounds like the seeds are viable for decades.
