Gurucharan jee
this is
Euphorbia
cotinifolia

Family: Euphorbiaceae
Red spurge, Mexican shrubby Spurge, Caribbean Copper Plant
Origin: Central and South America
Euphorbia cotinifolia has red leaves the color of the Smoke Bush, Cotinus coggygria. The Caribbean Copper Plant will lose all of its leaves if there is anything even close to a frost. Euphorbia cotinifolia will perform best if there is regular garden water. While they are quite drought tolerant they withstand this affront by dropping all of their leaves.
thank you very much
