Do you expect a big box garden center employee to know?
Maybe a 5 in 100 chance

It's a specialty garden center with lots of exotic plants, and a staff.

No, not that either. It's the size of an iris. The white flowers are about three times the size of a trumpet vine flower.

Deborah... Can you take pic with your phone and load it to your computer? If you can do that, it easy to upload pic then.

Foxglove. They are beautiful especially, the strawberry colored ones.

Deborah... Try googling Astra White Balloon Flower seeds. They have a single and a double white flower.

Back for another guess. How about Amaryliss. They have huge trumpet flowers and leaves somewhat like Daylily. They come in white and are blooming now around here.

You can email the picture to yourself to post from a computer or you can pull up Tomatoville in your phone's browser and post pictures exactly how you would from a computer. Another option is to download the Tapatalk app and access Tomatoville from there, it's sometimes easier to post a picture that way from your phone.

My opinion is Digitalis the common name for it is Foxglove.

Okay, basic facts:

Deborah seen this flower outside at her job in-or-somewhere near San Marcos, California on April 28th.

The weather there is around 70F high/50F low, so it is something that blooms in that temperature range.
