Question Can anyone identify this?

I know this has nothing to do with mushrooms but I still have to ask! My wife and I just bought a house and one of the plants in the yard has absolutely stumped everyone we know! If anyone here could help solve this great mystery I would very much appreciate it!

You have a cluster of Paulownia trees - Can be invasive.

Thank you for letting me know what it was. Our local nursery was stumped by it today too!

You're very welcome. Often it has different common names. Foxglove, among others.

I was looking it up under the name empire tree, and could only find full grow trees and they looked a lot different than mine. Also having a cluster of them threw me off.

There are a few of those around my area in Berrien County. They survived the winter but lost their flower buds to the cold. (Currently these trees are producing next year's flower buds on this year's growth.)
In Van Buren County, I saw a cluster like that surrounding a dead tree, indicating that it didn't make it through the cold last winter.
Down south, (Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia) these trees are very invasive, but I have yet to see one growing outside of anyone's yard, like Ailanthus, Norway Maple, and White Mulberry do here in S MI. (These are also trees not native to the US that are very invasive.)
