I see this everywhere, what is it?

This seems to pop up in beds, pavement cracks, probably in between teeth if you talk slow enough. Can anyone tell me what it is?

    Thanks, is that the Latin or common term? Any idea if Homebase sells them?

    euphorbia helioscopia. I know this because when I was a child it was my brother's favourite weed! Mine was groundsel. Not sure why we felt we had to have favourite weeds.

    Petty spurge. Pulls out easily. Mind the sap.

    Petty Spurge sounds like a Shakespearean insult. Thanks all.
  • I thought it was just my garden! What are the plants either side of it - I have a lot of those too.

    They are aquilegia, I let them self seed then pull any out that don't fit or get pushy. I know they're a bit Marmite but I like them..
