    That looks like Euphorbia Lathyris, Caper Spurge.

    It’s Euphorbia lathyris ... they commonly self sow and pop up in gardens.

    They can form a handsome plant if you have the space for them but beware the white sap which can cause photosensitivity and a nasty rash/burn if you get it on your skin in bright sunlight.
