This plant has orange blossoms that have yet to fully open and also has a hard, woody stem. I purchased this at a local indoor garden in Beaumont, Tx. Thank you for your time!

My first impression from the color of the bloom and the shape of the leaf is that it is a milkweed. "Asclepias tuberosa Orange Butterfly Weed". I have never seen one in a pot but we plant the seed here to support the Monarch butterfly. Maybe someone else will weigh in on this.

I believe mellie is right on.

The buds don't look match and the leaves look too wide for Butterfly Milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa) fly-Weed-Asclepias-tuberosa/:
