I think it is a kind of Euphorbia or member of the Euphorbiaceae family

It grows wild throughout much of Florida.

Thanks as always! I read where it's supposed to be fairly aggressive, although I didn't see it listed on the invasive species list. Like I said, that's actually the only place I've seen them growing. They are pretty striking - and now I can add some new photos to the Plant Database!

It's not listed as invasive but has a "use caution when planting" type of label...so far. Whistling
