Can anybody tell me the name of this plant?

Hi, this plant started growing in my garden last year, I didn't plant it myself but knew it wasn't a weed so thought I'd let it grow as it looks quite quirky. Thing is I haven't got a clue what it is, I'd like to put a name to it. Thanks in advance. :)

Yes, it's euphorbia lathyris. Its common name is "gopher spurge". It's supposedly a mole repellant. I can't say from personal experience if it works or not, lol :P

It is mumored to be a repellent,
but I think it doesn't work. It seeds very profusely, I would not keep it,
