A friend gave me two cuttings of this plant, which she has on her balcony in full sun, growing about 60cm tall. I put one small cutting into a pot in soil and it is now (after about 4 weeks) making new leaves, and another in water, which is now sprouting one weak root. The cuttings did ooze a milky substance.

    Maybe a smokebush? Do the flowers look like smoke above the plant?
