Would someone be kind enough to identify this small leaved plant for me please?

    It reminds me of spurge (euphorbia) which I dislike so can't help with a garden variety I'm afraid, there are quite a few I believe.

  • I don’t think it is Euphorbia but thanks for your suggestion.

    Looks like one of the oxalis triangularis, I don’t know the specific variety

    Euphorbia amygdaliodes 'Purpurea'. Wood spurge. Mine suffers badly with grey mould and disappears later in the summer, but looks fine now. Carefully test it for the white sap!

  • First first poster was correct. We think it is Euphorbia dulcis chameleon, sweet spurge.
