Huge stachys like plant at Maine Botanical Gardens -- name?

We saw this fascinating plant at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens last week and would love to ID it. The leaves look like a stachys cultivar but much larger than any I've seen. They are both velvety and leather like at the same time (very thick, succulent feeling, but velvety as well. We couldn't find a volunteer who knew... it's in a bed with a lot of annuals so could be an annual. Those larger leaves are probably 4" wide, 6" long at least. Any ideas? Many thanks!
