I think this is Oreocnide frutescens (Thunb.) Miq.
I do not think it matches as per images at Pouzolzia sanguinea (Blume) Merr.
May be Boehmeria or other closely related genus.
I m was trying Boehmeria but could not find a match but I guess it could be !
Pouzolzia rugulosa (Wedd.) Acharya & Kravtsova. ???
Looks different from images at Boehmeria rugulosa
This one is likely Oreocnide frutescens with male inflorescense.
