Nice pictures, James! Are these related to Adeniums in any way? I don't know much about these.

Thank you Ibis. Not related to Adeniums directly. I like these small growing Madagascar Euphorbia's because they are easily grown indoor windowsill plants that stay compact and, to my mind, have very interesting forms.

Those plants are looking pretty lively for this time of year. The first two are like miniature miliis, and like you say perfect for small spaces. Thumbs up

Here's a large-growing hybrid version (~10 gallon size) on the patio which actually looks better in the winter because the light levels are more tolerable on our rooftop patio and it gets more water in the form of rain. It branches but only from the base.
