Live Red Poinsettia in a White Birch Planter

Live Red Poinsettia in a White Birch Planter

Deck your halls with the quintessential plant of the holidays: a potted, live red poinsettia. Poinsettias naturally bloom in winter, showing off bright red bracts (or petal-like leaves) when days are short and nights are long. After the Christmas season, a well-tended poinsettia can make a stylish year-round houseplant. Ours is designed in a white birch planter, for a warm, woodsy feel. We also offer a white poinsettia.
Details

Botanical Name: Euphorbia pulcherrima

Common Name: Poinsettia

Origin: Central America

  • Red poinsettia has vibrant red flowers and flowering centers
  • Arrives in a natural white birch container

Available in 2 sizes:

Small: 4" grows up to measure overall approximately 10-12"H

Large: 6" grows up to measure overall approximately 16-18"H

Tending Tip: When the flowers start to age after the holidays, cut off the old blooming stems to encourage new growth; poinsettias will reliably bloom by the holidays if given 14 hours of nonstop nighttime darkness for two months, starting in early September; they will naturally start blooming with nights become long and dark, usually later in winter.

Fertilizing: Refrain from feeding poinsettias in the winter months; begin feeding them with a balanced fertilizer as directed starting in mid-spring and ending by early fall.
