    Thank you so much Silver Surfer! I got the same answers on another board, other than #1...that one said a Mexican Orange Blossom...so now that one may still be a mystery...although I don't remember it being a name like that when I bought it...

    Mexican orange blossom is Choisya ternata.
    I can say with 100% certainty that no 1 is not that!
    Choisya ternata has leaflets in 3. See...

    The Euphorbia would be better if you dead headed it.
    BUT.. be very careful of the white latex sap... it is toxic.

    Beware of the Euohorbia poison
