One of the charms of the old parts of the Rio de Janeiro town, are the very tall old walls where all kind of interesting volunteer plants find their haven in the cracks..This was in the Santa Teresa area..
The greyish leaves made me think of Euphorbiaceae but the seedpods and flowers probably don't match that family, I couldn't take a close-up of the flowers as they were too high above my head..
Anyone recognizes it?
