Anybody recognize this flower?

Found this in my father in law’s garden. Incredibly red (absolutely velvety red) in color, they seem to bloom in a pair together. And it appeared that each flower had 2 petals. Pretty small in size. The red color looked great against the lush green. But I do not know the name of the flower.

Any help?

    Euphorbia milii (crown of thorns, Christ plant, Christ thorn) is a species of flowering plant in the spurge family Euphorbiaciae, native to Madagascar. The species name commemorates Baron Milius, once Governor of Réunion, who introduced the species to France in 1821.
