Is it a keeper?

Hi Gang,

Hope everyone is well and enjoying their gardens.
This has been popping up around the garden, 

And  a head shot.




Is this a weed that's going to cause problems or a keeper to be encouraged ?

Thanks
Bob

    It's a Euphorbia, possibly Euphorbia griffithii 'Fireglow':

    I like it (though I don't have it) and it's certainly desirable - but it's also 'vigorous' and 'suckering' so can be invasive - so it's up to you! If you do decide to remove it, be very careful of the irritant sap / wear gloves / watch your eyes.

    In damp soil can get a wee bit invasive.

    Thank you all,

    A keeper it is then, link much appreciated LG_.
    Must admit I quite like it and will now move it to a more viewable spot. 

    Stay well
    Bob
