It is difficult to be sure from the photo, but the best match for your plant seems to be Euphorbia marginata, commonly called snow-on-the-mountain. This is an annual plant that typically grows to 1-3′ tall. It grows best in well-drained soils in full sun. If planted in too much shade, the plant will lengthen and flop at the top.
