I came across this plant near a bran new building on ground that had been dug up, relaid but left wild.




Sorry definition between plan and grass not good enough but I suspect a weed

Looks like a type of euphorbia, julien.

I agree, some sort of Euphorbia.

It's Gopher Spurge (Euphorbia lathyris)

Maybe Euphorbia lathyris (Mole spurge). Not common but sometimes in seed mixes.

Hi there,

I have them self seeded in my garden, they grow tall, and in the summer sun when the seed pods are ripe you can hear them pop and the seeds fly out.

Happy gardening.
