Poinsettia Care for Winter-Long Blooming

Dec 15, 14 Poinsettia Care for Winter-Long Blooming

December 12th is honored as National Poinsettia Day, and with it just having passed us, I imagine a quick glance around your home will reveal at least one of these beautiful plants sitting in splendor on a window sill.  It may surprise you to learn that these beautiful holiday plants are actually small trees, not flowers.  The blooms on these plants are very small and unattractive, but it’s the bright red bracts (modified leaves) that attract insects for pollination and entice us to decorate our homes with this festive shrub.  With proper care, they won’t just give you a beautiful winter, but they can grace your home with vibrant colors next year too.
