Several years ago I saved this poinsettia for my Mom-in-Law, Alice, at the end of summer. She didn't want it back so it's spent every year on my deck. I never did the work timing the lights to get it to re-bloom but I couldn't just let it die. For more information on the correct way to care for poinsettias CLICK HERE.
This year all of the plants were ignored. I saved a few, but they'll need some work when I replant them outdoors. I guess the poinsettia liked being left alone. I found it covered in red "flowers" and brought it up to join the rest of the Spring plants. It was a nice surprise.
