Please visit the spot once again look for the flowers or fruits and display the pictures. Do the leaves smell?
Help me to identify. This is a peculiar plant

I will check tomorrow again, I have 3 plants in my farm, that I propagated from a large plant in another farm, because I found this one really beautiful!

Persicaria belongs to Polygonaceae that shows typical ochreaceous stipule or sheathing stipule that covers part of the stem.The displayed plant does not show such stipule.

Went to the farm. The crushed leaves have no odor. No flowers :)

Powder Springs, GA(Zone 7b)

Has it got a milky sap? If so, may be some kind of euphorbia.

No Milky sap. Looks like it is going to flower soon. Will post new photos if so.

Waiting for your posts with flowers and Inflorescence that give more clues for a taxonomist to identify a plant exactly. There are some plant families which are easier to identify with leaf and other vegetative characters but basically plants are strictly grouped into Polypetalae(Corolla with free petals) Gamopetalae(Corolla with united petals) and others.

Kindly look at the above URLs in this forum.
These above plants I nailed are through characters but I have not seen them and I never had been to Australia or Malaysia.
Thank you

The flowers are very small, you almost need a magnifying glass to see them LOL

I never imagined this was so hard to name LOL

It's a nice looking plant, whatever it is. Could it be native to Brazil?

Every day I look at this page and spend at least 30 mts to explore this.The flower structure is not legible.

Yes, I think it is native to Brazil. May be considered a weed. But still beautiful and rare!

I never marked this as SOLVED!!!

Bretten, Germany

I wonder if it could be an Euphorbium?

Can you contact any of the teaching faculty or local Taxonomist or botanists or scholars about this Plant? Please do not leave this. When you find the answer please do not forget to D mail to me.
