This is the first time I have seen the christmas Euphorbia fully grown.

That's pretty funny! I don't think of this plant
as being very tall or large. I've seen them
much, much taller and larger. : > )

The tallest Poinsettia I've ever seen was probably
more than 25 feet/ 7.7 meters tall.

Most people over here wouldn't believe that the poor Poinsettia that's currently wilting in their dining room, looks like this in its natural state.

This shows us how it 'should' look.

Well, they are very widely grown in the ground here...
we just pretty much take them for granted.

We do though, don't we, when we have something right infront of us all the time ?

You're very correct! : > )

We are so lucky here in San Diego County
to have the Paul Ecke Ranch in Encinitas
which has the largest and most extensive
Poinsettia hybrid program in the world.
They produce practically every
color of Poinsettia you can imagine.
