Your euphoria isn't a Euphorbia.  Maybe a Hydrangea in the aspera group?

Or it could be something like Salvia turkestanica - it would be useful to see the whole plant!

Hello, Folks, so nice to hear from you plantaholics. Whenever I clicked REPLY, I felt dejected as I had nobody to reply to. What a sweet surprise. I will take a picture as I am sure it will flower within the next few days. Here in East London, it will be baking and flowers have responded positively.

Carolyn may be right.

Seedlings of Salvia sclarea ssp. turkestanica 'Vatican Pink. (I hope)



Two years ago I grew 'Vatican Pink' but when it flowered last year it turned out to be a Verbascum -I think V. chaixii so I'm not that good at identifying seedlings. Leaves are quite similar if you don't look too closely  ;D



Deinanthe caerulea is in the Hydrangea family which is why I thought your plant might be a hydrangea.

Roma: I kept clicking your 2nd pic, hoping to see the florets! Ah, no luck! Wonder if you could take a close up. I love seeing the markings of blooms. I did buy Turkistan clary, but none of them germinated. I hadn't had much luck this year with germination.

The Euphoria is a Clary type. Apparently, it's still teasing me. No vertical spire yet.

Some echinacea all tall and collapsing

A dahlia - quite pretty, but it's the first flower and the petals didn't look neat when it was pristine. Now that it has fully developed, one petal spoils the pic!

My cactus

Not bad for a short sweet surprise.
