Poinsettias aren’t always RED

…but this one is.

A neighbor has a RED landscape poinsettia that stands nearly 6 feet high.

Is there really a difference between the potted varieties that are sold at winter  holiday times and specimens such as this?

  1. Wow, now that’s a poinsettia! I thought they had to go through a certain light cycle in order to bloom. Surprises me that it would be possible in Florida. Will have to do some reading up on them.

    • I’ve seen much smaller versions in gardens, they do drop their leaves then start the cycle all over starting with green that turn red.

    • I think this gardener gives her plant tlc because this is the biggest one I have ever seen. It would be amazing to see larger ones, you are so lucky! Glad you joined us this year 🙂

  2. I never knew there were Poinsettias that were planted in the ground. This is gorgeous!! The things we learn from our blogs!!

  3. Yes there is. They are outside in the nice warm sun. Ours are going a bit potty near a cool windowsill . 😀
    Warmest wishes for the New Year to you & your family.

  4. I have never seen a poinsettia plant that big…that is gorgeous!

    Thanks for catching the incorrect blog address…I was wondering where you have been! 🙂 It is all corrected now!

  5. Wow, I’ve never seen one as large as that. We only have those itsy, bitsy ones in pots. That’s gorgeous & perfect for the theme
