Hi Wondering if someone could enlighten me on what this plant is. I believe it's a euphorbia
It's Euphorbia - Caper Spurge - be careful if you pull it up as the stems/leaves exude a white sap that can irritate your skin and eyes: Keratouveitis caused by Euphorbia plant sap
Agree with Palustris and JWK..Euphorbia lathyris. euphorbia lathyris - Google Search
That's a new one on me, I have never seen A Euphorbia like that. I like it.
Not one to be encouraged, it seeds all over the place.
I get these come up every year, I thought it was a good looking plant about 20 yrs ago Got to admit its not really invasive and easily removed, but if you let one seed you will be surprised where it comes up next year.
I had one pop up in my garden this year. Have potted it up and will put it into my new silver bed when I've finished digging in manure.
Interesting plant but BEWARE. Verty toxic and as already mentioned, it exudes a white milk-like substance, highly toxic and severe irritant.
Thank you all for your replies. I will remove the plant given it’s poisonous nature.
