Hi Max, not close enough, huh?? This was IDed by the Bot Gardens, one of their MGs broke off a piece, had it IDed and then gave me the cutting! Figures doesn't it?
Well, I've been researching (again LOL) and found this:
http://www.rarefloweringtrees.com/plants/trees.html and scroll down to Cnidoscolus aconitifolius, Spinach Tree. Does that look more like it??

Stacey, I think that's a whole lot closer. Let me know if/when you need me to move the picture.
