Pamper your poinsettia. With proper care it’ll serve you long after the holidays as a xeric evergreen perennial in your landscape.
Living in South Texas has its perks. One of them is the opportunity to grow poinsettias for annual holiday beauty.
If you’ve been taking proper care of the poinsettias prior to and during the holidays, then you have the opportunity that many people in the rest of the country do not. Incorporate them into your landscape for perpetual beauty!
Poinsettia is a semi-tropical but semi-arid plant. In other words, it does not like temperatures below 40 degrees or being watered every week. It’s a perfect plant for a large container outdoors or a specific bed in the landscape.
Follow these tips to keep your poinsettias thriving during the holidays.
