Can anyone identify this plant ?

This is in my new garden , does anyone know what it is ( not Japenese Knotweed I understand? ) It's in a shallow soil in limestone bedrock  . The stalks from last year are hollow dry there are several new shoots . Many thanks Phil

    Not right for peony.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Definitely Euphorbia Griffithii. Put gloves on to handle.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
