Identity of plant

kootenay(6aBC)September 10, 2013

Can anyone tell me what the name of this plant is? It's come up in the greenhouse this year. About 6 feet tall with white-violet bell like flowers and delicately wrapped seed pods similar to those of a tomatillo. Thanks

Could it be nicandra, albeit giant and attenuated because of being in the greenhouse?

Here is a link that might be useful: wikipedia page on nicandra
