Long Tall Sally

Julie commented - Is this a euphorbia trigona? It is so cool growing so long and thin like that! Great place for it by the front door!

Yes you are right Julie, it is a Euphorbia trigona, well spotted. It's probably growing too tall & thin because it's been inside since birth. It was by a sunny window but the little leaves used to curl up and die very quickly, although that was probably through me forgetting to water it for months, so I moved it to the front door where it gets the light but no sun.

The other green plant in my neighbours garden that bleeds sticky milk when it's cut is also from the same family, probably Euphorbia cyparissias.
