Pink Poinsettia


The snow has returned back to Britain. We have had a small dusting of the white stuff. The pond and birdbath have both gone back to being frozen solid.
This Pink Poinsettia was an Xmas present from my Mum. It is pink leaved instead of the usual Red coloured bracts.
This Mexican weed has become big business in the UK, being sold in millions around Xmas.
It is sat by the TV in its velvety bag. The big freeze is set to continue for the next few days. Will it be snowy on Xmas day I wander?
The snow has caused chaos in other parts of the country. The houseplants are the only plants I'm looking at.
I do like the colours of this new Houseplant..

Hi Kate, My Poinsettia has gone to the great compost heap.The central heating proved too much of a shock for it..
If yours is still alive you can continue to grow it on untill Sepetember when it needs a period of darkness every day to induce flowering!
Good Luck!!
