CAn anyone identify this plant please. It is a self set and started as a single shoot but has now developed into quite an attractive feature. It also seems to be very popular with the bees in the area , much to the disgust of my grandchildren - but at least they don't mess with this area of the garden!

Second time today! :-)
It's Euphorbia lathyris (caper spurge) & it's having one heck of a season!

Isn't it just Beattie

Thanks for your replies. At last I have found a site that pays more than lip service to plant identification. I have been trying to identify this since last year and now I can sleep at nights instead of thinking about it and just enjoy the garden.
I am currently fighting a running battle with snails. I have most of my vegetables growing in pots stood on gravel, which seems to deter them, but a couple of the sneaky critters must have dropped off overhanging plants and they have almost wiped out my potato plant in a container. I am going to try copper tape around the pots on the patio next and see if that works.
Trouble is I hate killing them as they are fascinating to watch as long as they leave my plants alone. They seem to leave the rhubarb alone though as suggested elsewhere on this site.

Try planting something like salad leaves and letting the snails graze on those.
