Hmmm..., there are some major differences between the Dalmation Toadflax and this plant, although some pictures look a bit similar. Leaves are sturdy, firm, leathery large and round rather than thin and pointed. Growth habit of leaves is a rosette around the stem top to bottom. No snapdragon-like flowerheads or buds were evident at the top of the plant; a striking feature were the pod-like growths between almost every set of rosettes (which were so tightly growing around the stem that you could not see it), some as big as a fist but not appearing to bud. The toadflax is noted as an invasive plant, but there were very few of these around and the growth habit was neat. I think we'll have to keep looking!
