    Hi
    This popped up in the garden recently and I’m guessing it’s maybe a weed as I didn’t plant anything there!
    It started as purple shoots and now has leaves. My plant ID app is not helping at all!
    Thanks!

    Ah interesting! I won't dig it up then. Sounds much better than the Sun Spurge that my plant identifier app suggested! Thanks.

    I don't think it's a dahlia ,spurge of some kind comes to mind.
    Cut a leaf off, if it has white milky sap, its more than likely a Euphorbia.
