Poinsettia tree

20150101_111032 as Smart Object-1

Poinsettias are typical holiday plants. We put them out on our front porches and decorate for Christmas. This poinsettia is quite different. It's a tree that has grown taller than the house. Pretty impressive. I wonder how old it is and how long it took to get so large.

Did you know?
  • There are over 100 varieties of poinsettias available.
  • Poinsettias contribute over $250 million to the U.S. economy at the retail level.
  • California is the top U.S. poinsettia-producing state.
  • It is estimated that women account for 80% of poinsettia sales.


  1. If you would put out a poinsettia plant where I live it would die within an hour or two!

    1. Stefan, I'm afraid to adk you what temperature it was there today. Here it was 78 Fahrenheit.
