Hi Nutcutlet.

1. Not a tree.

Not a juvenile tree. 

Leaves and flowers are completely wrong for a Horse chestnut!

It is a late flowering shrub called Clethra.

It should have a spike of flowers on the end of every branch.

A nice shrub.

I like them.

Sookie, when searching on www try using sites that you hope will be accurate... eg.RHS, Kew, Universities.


Google brings up  pictures by amateurs as well and can be misleading on occassions.

1. I believe is Knautia macedonica. ...with the grey look to the leaves and red Scabiosa type flowers.

Definitely Euphorbia lathyris.

It has white milky sap.

Be very careful the sap is toxic. See...

As others have said ....cuttings are best as then you will get an identical plant.

Seeds could be very variable.


All Fuchsia seed pods/ fruits are edible.

Mystery plant
