What is Euphorbia cyathophora

Euphorbia cyathophora commonly called as fire-on-the-mountain (scientific name: Euphorbia cyathophora) is a non-cold-resistant annual grass of the family Euphorbiaceae in the southern part of North America to Brazil, the family Euphorbiaceae. It is beautiful contrasting the bract color like a red insect meal and the original green bract color. In the summer, a lot of yellow flowers without petals will bloom at the tip of the flower stem. Flowers are not noticeable compared to bracts. When I hear Shojou, I remember a nursery rhyme called "Shotoshoujouji", but the grass is a fantasy beast created in ancient China, a red long hair and a creature resembling a monkey like a drinker. The name flower called a grass was named after reminiscent of the red head hair color.
Poinsettia belongs to the same genus, the whole bract leaves red. E. cyathophora, also known as' fire-on-the-mountain'. Also, in the same genus there is "Euphorbia marginata called "snow-on-the-mountain".
