Can anyone ID this Succulent?

mike_jw(London. UK)July 19, 2014

This plant came from the Houseplant section of a well-know chain-store. The label just said 'Houseplant - for indoor use'. The height in the photo is 44cms/17ins. The new leaves start off green, then mature to a reddish-colour.

Euphorbia trigona, perhaps.

If the stems are three angled, then as Ming, suggested, E. trigona.
A nice looking plant which I would look to put in a pot 1 size up.

Thanks to both of you for your positive ID. Yes, the stems are indeed three angled. I found a site with a page devoted to Euphorbias, and was surprised at their many forms and shapes.
