Hi Flavian133, Welcome!
You have a lovely, healthy looking Poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima). Poinsettia's are considered disposable, seasonal plants by many, to be enjoyed during the holiday season and then discarded.

I find them somewhat attractive for the leaves alone. I bought two on XMas clearance 25 cents each and plan to keep them going a while.

I bought a large pot to decorate the house this winter from my local supermarket. I doubt I'll keep it as my house is very small but I'm really enjoying it. It's 3 different varieties in the same pot.

Sue, those are gorgeous!

Some folks here in Florida have Poinsettias growing in their landscapes. One year I purchased about a dozen for holiday decorating and then planted them in my yard sometime in February. They looked so nice for almost a year and suddenly all of them died. I never could figure out what happened but we had a waterway behind our house and the homeowners association had a maintenance guy who'd ride by in a boat to spray weeds along the bank; I think the spray got the poinsettias. We had to finally tell them to not spray behind our house because the over-spray was killing the grass and the idiots were spraying on windy days and some container plants on the deck got hit one time. It used to make me so mad when I'd see that little boat going by on windy days! Grumbling
