But which? The nearest label said E, characias, but the red in the flower and pointed leaves make me doubt. By the way, look at the nice difference between the female flower (on top of the fruitbody) and the red male parts. Well separated to avoid self pollination.

(a separate picture of the leaves failed)

It could be a subspecies of Euphorbia characias. There is at least one with red flowers.

Looks more like E. rigida to me. The sexual parts are very close together before the over begins to swell and it's pedicel lengthens. You can see them between the not yet red nectar gland.
