We are not botanists. A cursory web search shows most commonly known foxglove leaves look very different from this specimen. Our best guess for this leaf might be a variety of Wild Geranium (Geranium maculatum) or a “False Foxglove” such as Aureolaria flava or Aureolaria virginica. Your expertise welcomed.
