Ive always classed it as a weed as it dosn't do much more than this.

It is a Euphorbia possibly cyparissias (the Cyprus Spurge) - will seed around once it starts flowering and watch out for the latex in the sap which is a skin irritant

I don't think it's E. cyparissias, as I have that in my garden.

It is some sort of Euphorbia, though, and I think it's a weed. I'd get rid of it unless you are very fond of it!

Yes it is Euphorbia, no special flower just those little green non descript which shoot out seeds, I was given some years ago I was told they would keep moles from the garden, but I pull up all the young seedlings I dont want they are easy to pull up no runners or stubbon roots, but I leave one or two for leaf structure.
