    I'm by no means certain, and this is a total guess image....

    but something about it is making me want to say it's a type of euphorbia.

    Did you buy it, or has it just popped up from nowhere? image

    Could it be Ditrysinia fruticosa?

    It looks like Euphorbia Lathyris, the Caper Spurge.

    I think caper spurge

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.

    A quick google and I think borderline and fidget are right ?.

    I always think of lathyris as the skinny leaved one. Same name but look different.

    it's biennial, this is the second year. Skinny leaves are the first year

  • My initial thought was Euphorbia. Thank you!  It isn’t mine  it belongs to a friend. Thanks again.

    Still learning new things all the time on here ? ?.
