Ironic that you would post photos of this plant, as I just yesterday saw one in someone's car in the parking lot of my church.
2 hours later I was at H and H Nursery in Lakewood and they had one there, too...but there was no label on it.
My first "guess" is that it's some sort of Euphorbia. I could very well be wrong, but if you are able to pick off a leaf and see if there is a milky white sap that emerges from the axel, then it's probably a Euphorbia of some sort.
I did look in the plant database here but there are 51 pages of various species and it doesn't s appear to be in there.

I'm also guessing Euphorbia of some sort.

Except for what I think are the flowers...

Thank you everyone for your comments. Based on Mike's comment, I contacted H&H Nursery and sent them the photos - they just told me that it's called a pedilanthus bracteatus (or "Slipper Plant"). Glad to have tracked it down as I'm hoping to use them in our new landscaping.

Which is a synonym for Euphorbia bracteata (the accepted name). Cool plant!
