Trying to find a name for this plant .

Thanks in advance.

Looks like a poinsettia relative.

Thanks. I ran a couple of searches on poinsettia leaves, but did not locate any that I thought were the same as this mystery plant. Maybe I'm looking in all the wrong places. Wouldn't be the first time. Jim

It looks like Wild Poinsettia (Euphorbia heterophylla var. cyathophora) which I think is found in many parts of North America.

Virtually all our garden plants are initially found somewhere in the world growing wild.
In UK we do not have very many indigenous wild plants compared to the rest of the world.
Many of the plants that now grow in our gardens plants have been found in the wild by early day plant hunters and seeds have been brought back from China, India, Chile, Africa, Australia.USA etc etc.
From those plants others have bred hybrids or cross pollinated to give us all new wonderful cultivars.

eg in UK we have many Pseudotsuga menziesii ...common name Douglas fir.
It was found in USA almost 200 years ago. It was only introduced to the UK in 1827 by the famous Scottish botanist /plant hunter David Douglas.

The stories of these brave men make interesting reading.
Joseph Rock, Farrer, Seibold, Wilson, Drummond, Douglas, Forrest .
Many gave their names to our garden plants... eg Phlox Drummondii, Sorbus Joseph Rock. etc etc.

Even today people are exploring and still finding /naming for the very first time new plants.
eg Wollemia nobilis....Wollemi pine. Discovered by Mr Noble about 30 years ago. Now in botanic collections and gardens all over the world.
