#3.
This grows as a weed and it is about 8 inches long. I'm given to understand that all milky stems are of the Euphorbia family.

#1 and #2 are cultivars of Christmas Poinsettia, Euphorbia pulcherrima and
#3 is Garden Spurge, Euphorbia hirta.

Milky stems may be Euphorbia but other families like Apocynaceae have milky sap too.

Worth mentioning that Euphorbia hirta is usually included in the segregate genus Chamaesyce, as Chamaesyce hirta...
