Euphorbia whatsthisthen?

A few plants from Priest Hill. First up is a showy spurge, about knee-high and clearly originally from cultivated stock. I cannot identify it, so if you are reading this and think that you know what it is, please let me know!

The second species is the blue-flowered form of Scarlet Pimpernel (not the full-blown sub-species). I had not seen this before and was rather taken aback by the intensity of the blue - not quite Alpine Gentian, but not far off!

Lastly is Henbit Dead-nettle, a remnant here from the days when it used to be cultivated farmland.

Hi Steve, is that Filago pyramidata growing around the Pimpernel? :-o

Well spotted John! Seed from Surrey stock.

Banstead even!

Not Euphorbia oblongata is it? I've seen that growing on Portland, just by the Seven Kings pub.

Glad you think that Seth, as that is my 'guess' too.
