annual spurge. aka Euphorbia.
Comes up as a weed all over my allotment
Same here Fleurisa - once they seed (and they produce a lot of seed) you have them forever. Luckily they pull up easily but watch the white sap (which is why they are called milkweed) as it irritates the skin after exposure to sunlight.
A weed is just a plant in the wrong place, Charlie! If you like it (and I can see why), keep some seed and sow it next spring. It's an annual so will die after seeding anyway.
Looks like Euphorbia peplus... common name Petty spurge.
Good id tips on link...
