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

A Poinsettia still blooming at USD. Usually, they are starting to go dormant (for about a month or so) at this time of year. Photo taken March 7, 2009.

This plant still thinks it is Christmas time, like those decorations on the house in the earlier photo. Lol.

Yes, these plants are still blooming. I wasn't actually correct when I said they should be going dormant now...I see many plants and trees still blooming. Eventually all the leaves will fall off and then a month or so after all the flowers and red bracts will drop also. Then it will go briefly dormant and start growing again.
