Could anyone please identify this plant for me?

United Kingdom Gb

I bought this as a small plant when I first started out gardening, now I am a bit wiser and keep all the name cards ...




Could it be a type of euphorbia (spurge)?

Hi Meljoh73, That's definitely a euphorbia and healthy. Lovely shrubs. Good luck with it. Kindest regards, JONATHAN H.

It is Euphorbia robbiae or wood spurge I think Very invasive in the garden . Definitely a Euphorbia.

Also watch for it seeding all over the place and, if you decide to prune it back, for the latex in the sap which is a skin irritant
