Notes:

Can you help me identify this? I have not seen any plant like this in PA, and my main concern is whether it is toxic or not, as I have a small child and a dog. The plant is about -maybe- a foot and a half tall. Growing relatively quickly, maybe a couple inches since June, when it was first spotted. It is very “orderly” and symmetrical, and it oozes white liquid quite rapidly if you cut a leaf. Any ideas?

    Maybe an Aslpepias, Milkweed. Milkweeds are poisonous, to best to keep pets & children away from them.

    This is most likely Euphorbia lathyris or Gopher Plant. It is an invasive weed native to Europe and has a poisonous latex sap that some people are very allergic to. Read the comments on this website. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/55261/
