OMG. I spoke to an Irish friend last night who guessed Spurge by my description but I never got to send the picture.

I was just talking to Sjoerd, who btw is from Norway. He's the one who id'd the plant, and does have it in his garden. What he was saying is to be careful as it like to get a little invasive. Just wanted to keep you abreast if you are planning on finding it for your garden.

Here's an idea: send your picture and any information you have about the plant to: https://www.wildflower.org/expert/ This is the "Mr. Smarty Plants" line. They will attempt to identify any plant you can come up with. They are also a great resource on native plants, especially wild flowers.

So far, it doesn稚 seem to be happening. The only place I found it is a California nursery, where it痴 sold out. Anyway, I dont want it badly enough to pay a lot for shipping.
