yes
Is there a mix up at Acalypha chamaedrifolia (Lam.) Müll.Arg. with both species (this and the posted one) being present ? 

I am sorry I cannot confirm its identification. There are many cultivated species in Acalypha.
Further the flowers in the plant seems to have withered and only the filamentous bracts or styles remain in the inflorescence.

Thank you.
