It looks like Cypress Spurge, Euphorbia cyparissias. But perhaps my eyes are playing tricks on me.

THAT is the exact same plant I have at my place.
I was told it was a type of sedum, resembling an "Angelina sedum", now that I'm looking closer at my plant I realized the texture isn't that of sedum at all. lol So it has been mislabelled!

I just looked up Cypress Spurge, Euphorbia cyparissias... says its a noxious weed that causes: Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea when ingested. Redness, swelling, blisters after some delay following contact with skin.

Mine does not do that. I've manipulated them barehanded all the time & no such symptoms... They are invasive tho...

I'm wondering if its not a variant of cypress spurge....

I'm on a hunt to figure this one out myself now!
