It looks a little bit rhododendron-y, but no I am not at all sure what it is. Sorry

It looks like Euphorbia sp.
It has white milky sap.
Be very careful not to get this on your skin.

It is never a good idea to dig up any plant from the wild.
It might be rare.
If everyone did it...
It has happened in the past, and whole populations of wild plants have now disappeared.
