    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

    WOW! that is kind of scary!! I will definitely dead head them...that's why I wanted the names so badly...I had NO clue what to do with them...and it seemed like they were ready to come off...now I'm thinking I need to move it again, I moved it to the back yard where I could enjoy it more, but we have 2 small dogs...one still a puppy just over a year old...and she's a curious one! I will definitely move it before I dead head it...

    Thanks so much for the info!

    2. Euonymus.
    It is looking very pale and not right.
    Is it my imagination or am I seeing water all across top of soil?
    If so it will drown.
    All pots for any plant MUST have drainage holes in the bottom.

    I have actually been debating about cutting that one off...the water was right after I had watered...we are in the middle of days clost to 100 so I had given them all a good soaking because we can only water every other day...but before I moved them something had been eating the leaves...so I knew something had to be done with it...all the pots do have drainage...and rocks in the bottom as well...
