This photo was taken in the Seattle area by my sister. The bush is about 1 1/2  foot tall by 2 feet wide and is blooming now.

Hawke writes: definitely a Euphorbia, hard to say which variety, quite beautiful plants, but an aggressive weed and hard to remove if established (you have to get rid of all the main root system).

the white liquid sap in the stems is a strong irritant, if you get it on skin it will cause a nasty rash, if you get it in the eyes, you'll have to go to hospital to save your eyesight, and don't even think of eating it. most gardeners wear eye goggles and heavy gloves when cutting this back. if you have children... get rid of it!!!
