Answer: I think you may be describing "snow-on-the-mountain" or Euphorbia marginata. This is a North American native and grows from seed each year. If allowed, it will self sow from year to year in one spot giving the impression that it is a perennial. It makes a spectacular show over a long period of time in August. Be careful in handling this plant as many people are allergic to the sap.
