Its about 4feet tall, yes it has white sap when cut, I will have to confirm the name with you Sandra, but you could be right. I get carried away with my planting but not too sure of the plants name, I am still learning though .... have a good day, I am about to start work now.

Panther,

This plant is Euphorbia trigona...I have one in a pot in my house. I've had it for 8 years and it's 4.5 feet tall. This Euphorbia is very widely grown as a landscape plant in San Diego. There's literally hundreds (maybe even a thousand) of species of Euphorbia that grow outside in Southern California.
Some species become 50 foot trees.

You're welcome. Yes, the large Euphorbias are an incredible sight! I will post some large species of Euphorbia in the near future.
