Alien Life Force or Common Weed?

I can tell you this about it: It grows like a weed, self propagating and rooted in poor soil.  It tolerates dry soil up to a point.  And no matter how abused, comes back year after year.  I have shot it from every angle possible and also taken a shot of the spotted stem.  Anyone?

I vote for alien life force.

Jerry, I'm betting that's what everyone guesses. It looks tropical and very exotic in this desert landscape. A neighbor had them taking over her garden so she gave me a couple of starts years ago. They seem to only reproduce once and then get prettier with age.

Had a strange plant in my yard one time as well. Dug it up and the root ball looked like a brain, gave me the creeps.

That's what I need - "weeds" that look good and need no maintenance. Send some to my garden.
