Poinsettia plants or "Points" are a Christmas must have. They add class and color to any Christmas party you throw yourself or go to this season. They also make great gifts! Poinsettias are traditionally used as a living decoration at Christmas. They come in several colors including marbled, pale yellow, pink and, of course, red. They add Christmas spirit in any room in your home with enough quality light. Poinsettias only get about 2 feet tall and wide when grown as an indoor plant and don't need much babying when you first get one. Here are some things to keep in mind when buying your Points. They are tropical plants therefore they need to be protected from extreme cold weather. Protect the plant any night we drop below 35 degrees.
