Cultivated, garden flowering plants seen at a plant nursery in Muscat on 18th March.

I hope this is Verbascum ..

Thank you for leading to the id. I did not think of Verbascum earlier.

I hope Verbascum blattaria

It has no distribution in Oman and sp. does not look like matching !

I think white flowered form V. blattaria f. albiflorum is common in cultivation, especially dry places.

Verbascum blattaria L. Leaf pattern does not look like matching ! And flower color as well.

Can we consider Verbascum phoeniceum?

This is a cultivated, garden plant and not native to Oman.

Both can have such white flowers and often cultivated forms, leaves may suggest Verbascum phoeniceum as … pointed out.
