My neighbor Bob bought a huge poinsettia for the Christmas Holiday's. His celebrations were all over by Christmas Day, he brought this plant to me (it was actually 3 in a pot) for my Christmas dinner. I managed to keep it alive all winter. i divided it and transplanted it to the end of the garden. all 3 are doing well. it will be interesting to see if i can keep it alive and get it to bloom in early Dec. and take it back to him!
