Hello, a friend give us these plants last year but did not know their identity. Does anyone know what this beauty is? As you can see it has a red (leaf shape) inset as part of the main leaf. Thanks for your help in advance!

It looks like one of the native Poinsettia. So definitely a Euphorbia. I don't know if there are native Poinsettia in Oklahoma.

Thanks for the speedy replies! It's good to put a name on it. We moved a few (about 4"-6" tall) in early June to another location that took hold in about a week and they're about 27" tall and a 36" spread, we love it!

I agree, Euporbia. It reminds me a lot of Wild Poinsettia (Euphorbia heterophylla var. cyathophora) that we see here in Florida sometimes but may also be present in other areas of the country.

Our data base may be wrong. There seems to be two distinct plants: Euphorbia heterophylla and Euphorbia cyathophora. Euphorbia heterophylla var. cyathophora is a synonym for Euphorbia heterophylla.
