Euphorbia helioscopia   Sun Spurge

Euphorbia helioscopia (Gozo)

This was such a bright and healthy plant that it looked at first like some special Mediterranean subspecies of the commonly seen British plant. The way you can tell that the photo was taken on the continent rather than the British Isles is from the Silene colorata in the background.
