Thank you both,
Yes Amy it has long prickles but they are not very sharp.
It flowers every year.

Never seen this before, Hywel! It's common name 'Pincushion plant' is very apt! 😃

Sorry, Hywel! I got part of the name wrong! I should have written: 'Pincushion euphorbia'! Below is a link to a page that features it.

Thank you Balcony, it's just that I find many common names a bit silly :D

Something interesting I didn't know which I read on the link is that the male flowers are yellow and the female flowers dark red. Therefore this is a female plant.

Glad to have enlightened you then, Hywel! 😃
