Senico (I think) about to bloom for 1st time

I've had this for a few years, but this is the first time I'll get to see a bloom. A type of senico, I think.

Here's the plant

Nice Paul - Where in Long Beach are you? I live off of 2nd in Naples/B.Shore. Maybe set up a trade or something in the future--

Ity does look like a Senecio, you'll know for sure when the flower opens as it will be kind of like a peeled back daisy, as its in that family(Asteraceae)

I believe they may be smelly too!

After a spelling lesson from Larry, I was able to do a Google search. I'm calling it Senecio anteuphorbium.

No scent. I'm sticking with Senecio anteuphorbium, as these sites seem to confirm:
