I don't think that's it..... Flowers are quite loose and open. They stand about 14"-18" above the ground.

I don't think so. I have Snow on the Prairie growing here and the form is quite different.

My first thought was maybe Sea Myrtle (Baccharis halimifolia)

Well, forget that ... I forgot to enlarge your photo and now that I have, I see that it isn't Baccharis. Green Grin!

Going back to Kent's suggestion, he may be right.
These were taken in Texas.


Paul, any chance of getting additional photos.

LOL, I thought I was seeing white flowers but looking closer, I now see those are leaves and it does resemble Euphorbia bicolor as Kent suggested earlier.

More photos of E. bicolor in Travis County Tx can be enlarged for comparison view: https://ask.extension.org/ques...[pl
