Description:

Habitat = cemetery.
A plant with a distinctive flower but I haven't been able to work out what it is. Found in a cemetery so may not be a native. The flower is very small (c1mm across) and the leaves <1cm long.

E. peplus

Typo error. But a very bad one!! E. peplis is a very rare plant. Extinct in the UK. Probably. Oops.

Thanks

Thanks both.

I should probably have recognised it was Petty Spurge, even though this specimen is rather straggly and redder than normal - presumably down to where it's growing!
