Euphorbia tanzaniana. Euphorbia is a large genera of plants, some of which are very attractive succulents with really cool patterns and shapes, others of which have real leaves and some of which are downright weedy. This is one of the nicer ones which happens to be a great grower as well. The flowers, unfortunately, are somewhat non-descript but they make up for it with generally cool, year-around appearance and ease of culture. I found this one at Home Depot for about $2 about a year ago. It's probably doubled in size in this last year.
