  • It looks abit like a Momosa I have but don't quote me on that as I'm not 100% sure.

    image  The picture I was looking at was a Euphorbia. Its now in flower. You can cut the stalks back to the base when its finished flowering. Use gloves. The sap will irritate skin especially in sunshine.

    I'd go so far as to say euphorbia characias subsp wulfenii

    Devon.
  • Glad you guys answered this post my neighbour identified my what she said was a Momosa so I've just googled Europhorbia and matched it to my plant image which means I have a Europhorbia to so glad I joined this forum now image

    Agree with Verdun - don't get the sap on your skin, especially on a sunny day - but apart from that it's a great plant. image
