I tried to keep a Poinsettia once. It grew tall, lost all it's leaves and was ugly, not knowing how to maintain it..I chunked it.
Nice work Prowl, keeping Draven happy for 7 years..wow!

I have been successful with my poinsettias, thus far.:) I have one planted(in ground) from several years ago that has bloomed for me this year. The other poinsettia, in ground, was in shock after I planted her, but she is rallying around very nicely.

Prowl,
Sure. My 'red' Poin would you believe bloomed for me this season. In fact, it was in bloom for four or so months.

Pic on left was taken 5/29/09, how it looks now. Brachs are fading and new growth is all around it!

The other pic taken in early April shows color. As I said, I had color for a number of months. I was so pleased. Just hated to throw out live plants after Christmas. And they have done well for me. I do cover them when we have freezing conditions, which is not often. :)

Someone???? (Tim) mowed them over, he thought they were dead. I was trying so hard they actually had some new leaf growth at the very bottom. Grrrrr. This is what happens when a man stays home:rolleyes: Maybe they have a chance. If not I'll buy more this year.
