I am trying to find the name of this plant. Here's a picture of the main portion of a mature plant. The central portion of the plant is five-sided and at the angles are covered with fuzz. This tapers down to soil level where it looks like a typical tree branch. The leaves emerge directly from the top then are pushed to the sides of the pentagonal in a spiral. The seeds are produced in pods that form around the bases of the upper leaf stems. The leaves (including stems) are about one foot long. The sap is milky.
