I am trying to find out the name of this plant. My grandfather had a bad allergic reaction to it and the grandkids play around the same area so just worried it could be harmful. Please let me know as soon as possible thanks everyone!

Umm, it looks like your average garden sedum.

Someone more into succulents will have to id species.

I've never heard of anyone having an allergy to sedums, but I suppose there must be someone allergic to everything.

Looks like it could be euphorbia, which would explain the allergic reaction. check out Grey Hedgehog to compare. Cut a stem (wear gloves) and see if a milky substance leaks out.

You're right Olychick...good catch.

OP, are the leaves little fat bundles of goo, or tooth edges narrow leaves?

Olychick it looks exactly like the Grey hedgehog! A milky substance did come out when he cut a piece. I guess he will just need to wear gloves next time he trims and we will just tell the kids not to touch. Thank you so much!
