    I’m not sure what it’s called, but we had it in the flower border at a house I lived at when I was a kid. Several of us neighborhood kids learned, even though the adults warned us (of course we didn’t listen!) that if you handle it, then touch your face, your eyes will burn for DAYS! Very pretty, but don’t touch!

    Thanks for the warning – I have touched it several times but fortunately have not rubbed my eyes afterward!

    Did you ever discover what this plant is? It appeared in my yard this year and I am trying to decide if I should keep it.

    No – I have not yet found any information on the plant. I have continued to ask neighbors, etc., but no one has been able to provide information.

    A variety of euphorbia I’m pretty sure.
