Wild Summer Poinsettia and Creeping Fig

Years ago I got this native wild plant from our woods and planted it in the yard.Now it is everywhere I look but I don't mind a bit. Somewhere I read that it is called "Wild Summer Poinsettia" but all I know for sure is from its milky sap that it is in the Euphorbia family. When fall arrives, the red blotches will become bright red,and then this weed really starts tap dancing.

This looks so like the Poinsettias we can buy at Christmas as houseplants....with really bright red bracts.
