Hey,
From your picture attached you have a plant called Devil's Backbone, Pedilanthus tithymaloides. It will only bloom red, lady slipper like flowers in full sun but will grow in shade. It will get 2-3' tall and wide, needs well drained soil and growing zone is 9-11. It's a succulent that can get ones attention when it blooms! It does well in containers in/outdoors. This plant is a hummingbird magnet if it is outside blooming! Nice plant!
Let us know if we can be of further help. A
