What's this growing in my border?
Some type of euphorbia, l'm sure someone will know the exact one
Vendée, Western France
Native spurge. No redeeming features that I know of and, like all euphorbias, the sap can be an irritant if it gets on your skin in sunshine and dangerous if you get it in your eye. Handle with care.

I would get it out quickly (and carefully) loads keep popping up in my garden and they get big very fast.

Euphorbia lathyris... common name caper spurge.
Be careful white sap is toxic.
When large they can look superb.
