If it's a named cultivar (quite likely in an open garden) the it could be ex 'Red Star'.

Could well be Topbird.  Most of mine are McKana hybrids (or my own hybrids from those and Caerulea) and they sprout new tiny flowerbuds at joints on the existing main spike when I dead-head them.

Is this a weed?

Have it out before it seeds - it produces several thousand of them!

Look like Black Bryony to me.  Bindweed has large trumpet shaped flowers.


Edit: Actually, I'll take that back as the stems aren't right and black bindweed does indeed also have small insignificant flowers.

Try resizing or using a different compression level on your images so they are about 1MB in file size.  Easy on a PC or laptop but maybe not on other devices.

I've found that removing any developing seed pods does make the existing spike produce some extra (often smaller) flowers.

Please can anyone identify this plant ?

Leaves that big point to it perhaps being one of the laurels.  I also thought philadelphus at first.

It's Caper spurge, a wild type of euphorbia (E. lathyris.)  They appear from nowhere, probably as a result of bird droppings.


Watch the white milky sap if you break a stem or decide to remove it as it causes a photo-sensitive reaction on the skin.
