Notes:

Unknown plant, no flowers ever produced, loses most leaves each year in mild CA winters (Los Angeles), very hardy, drought tolerant. Withstands neglect, and overwatering. Was grown as a mystery houseplant from a 4″ cutting for years, then outdoors in pots, now thriving outdoors in the ground, full/partial sun. Leaks a milky white sap when damaged. Beautiful green leaves and woody trunk. Seems like it wants to grow very large. I need help identifying this ornamental curiosity, please

    Maybe African milkbush (Euphorbia umbellata). Check out the link below for further information. Click on images to enlarge. Best wishes! http://tropical.theferns.info/viewtropical.php?id=Euphorbia+umbellata
