This plant started growing in a pot I had outside early in the summer. I didn’t plant it. The flowers on it look similar to the yellow poinsettia flower (not leaf). The pink color is part of the leaf. The plant is 26″ tall.
Thanks for any help.

    This is probably a wild poinsettia.

    It is a Wild Poinsettia (Euphorbia heterophylla). I have it all over the place here in w. cent. Ala. It is a nice little splash of color, or quite striking when planted in mass.
    Collect seeds late summer or fall, or just let them fall to the ground.
