Euphorbia
by: Jacki

I thought this plant could be the one known as Devils Backbone, when the stem is very crooked and zig zag. Botanically, it's known as Euphorbia tithymaloides.

On further investigation, it's something else. I can't find anything that shows the characteristic of those thorns emerging from near the leaves, although other Euphorbia have this characteristic.

This gives me the confidence that this is some kind of Euphorbia, but I can't pin it down more than that.
