Euphorbia oblongata (Balkan Spurge) new for Wexford

 Balkan Spurge looks just like Irish Spurge, but it is hairy. A rare garden escape in Ireland. Surprised to find 3 plants along the edge of a field today at Bunclody. This is the first time Balkan Spurge has been seen in Co. Wexford.
 Looks very like Irish Spurge in this photo
 Two mature plants which were flowering, plus this one young plant
