I can't find a picture of this anywhere online. It could be a weed but it has rubbery leaves almost like a succulent. Found in Northern Colorado.

I don't know, but if it's a weed, it's a very attractive one.

I don't know either but if it came up in my yard, I'd keep it.

Looks interesting. It reminds me of Dusty Miller aka Jacobaea maritima, synonym Cineraria maritima but with extra twists and turns.

Could it be a Glaucium? I'm growing one that made me think they may be related. I've read that in some places mine is a weed. I would love to have whatever yours is also. It's looks gorgeous.

Very cool plant, whatever it is. I agree - looks like a Dusty Miller mutation.

It looks like it could be something in the Dusty Miller family except for the description of 'rubbery leaves'. Dusty Miller is soft and velvety, not rubbery. Whatever it is, it's gorgeous!

Here is photo of another glaucium that looks sort of close. I think Leslieray could be on to something.

I found out it is euphorbia Decaryi? It is a succulent found mostly in tropical and sub tropical conditions but also in rocky places. I could fill a semi trunk with all of them around here. And I only noticed them this year on a hike. Cool.

Does it bleed a white sap when you break off a leaf? If not, its not an Euphorbia. I have my doubts on the ID.

Euphorbia decaryi. Yes, I think you're right.

The picture looks pretty close, but I have to wonder at the hardiness factor. You say it's growing wild in Colorado? Not really subtropical. I found one source that listed it as only hardy to 40°.
