    (You don’t need to publish this, just fyi)I’ve seen it and think it’s an invasive euphorbia (spurge) but haven’t figured out what kind yet. May look pretty now but would not encourage it until identified.

    Thanks Sally and Suzanne! I think we’re on the right track now. With your help I found this variety that looks close http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euphorbia_helioscopia
