    Any ideas what this is? My original post and description did not make it, (oops! I’m new here) so there are some details below about the mystery plant In the photos… This plant is hardy, leaks a milky white sap, is drought tolerant, and loses nearly all of its leaves usually in the winter months. Began growing from 4 inch cutting indoors about 15 years ago, moved to outdoor pots, and finally it is now flourishing in the ground. So far it seems to grow quickly to fill any size container. Very beautiful smooth somewhat waxy feeling vibrant green leaves. The third picture is accidentally rotated but was included to show the woody trunk. Any information on what plant this might be would be extremely appreciated. Thank you!
