Looks like  sword bush.  Phyllanthus epiphyllanthus syn. Xylophylla epiphyllantha.

First and third set of photographs belong to Phyllanthus epiphyllanthus. Note continuous stem with flowers along the margin.

The second set of photographs belong to Homacladium platycladum (syn Muehlenbeckia platyclados, Polygonum platycladum F.Muell.), a member of Polygonaceae, note jointed stem divided into flattened sepments, a modification of stem known as phylloclad, also seen in Opuntia.
