Hi found this plant in the garden last summer, thought it was funky then it died away, now its coming back, have no idea what it is, any help would be grand
Looks like a Euphorbia of some kind, not sure which one though, maybe lathyris?
Euphorbia lathyris aka Caper spurge or Mole Plant. It can be a striking plant , but if you're going to remove it please read my post here as the sap can cause problems
Thanks, I think I'll leave it, i like it. It's a bit funky!
I like them too
I agree with Dovefromabove, looks like a Caper Spurge. Bees absolutely love it. The flowers are so tiny and don't look like flowers to you and me; so you'll wonder what the bees are doing, but come late spring/summer it will be swarming.
It self seeds VERY readily!!
