Euphorbia species growing in woodland.
No interactions present.
An interesting plant, represented in the UK by two subspecies. E.a. subsp. amygdaloides, which is native in the South of the UK, and E.a. subsp. robbiae which is introduced and is not only very common in gardens, but is also vigorous and escapes easily. Many records turn out to be the introduced subspecies and so it's handy to be able to tell one from the other. Happily it's easy. Subsp. amygdaloides is essentially non-rhizomatous (sometimes it has very short rhizomes) and the 1st year leaves are pubescent underneath and on the edges. Subsp. robbiae has long rhizomes (which is of course why it is so good at spreading to form big patches) and has more or less glabrous 1st year leaves.
