Euphorbia pulcherrima - Poinsettia, Christmas Plant (Euphorbia pulcherrima - Poinsettia, Christmas Plant)

Several Christmas plants growing in the ground next to this
house a couple blocks from where I live in San Diego, CA. Photo taken Dec. 16, 2009. Unfortunately, due to lighting the pic isn't very clear.

How wonderful that you can grow them in the gardens....They are a very indoor plant over here Andy.........

Yes, it's pretty wonderful they are commonly grown
in the ground here. I've noticed so many tall plants
blooming in my neighborhood now. It has been warm
the last few days and suppose to get warmer...however,
by seeing these plant makes it feel a bit more like Christmas.

euphorbia pulcherrima! Governor Poinsette was a very interesting historical character....
How strange it would seem to be suffering with the heat at Christmas...a novel It is a very chilly minus 17 degrees C. outside my door tonight...with a windchill factor that makes it feel like minus 25! Enjoy!

WOW!!! It's very cold where you live now. Stay warm.

It's not suffering from heat...even though today it was 80 degrees F / 26 degrees C. Poinsettia love warmth...except during hot weather in summer when they commonly wilt.

Thanks! Can you imagine a Poinsettia 3 times larger than these plants? I've seen them that tall.

Believe it or was even warmer than's
starting to feel like summer. However, it's suppose to cool
down a little on Monday.
