Here’s a beautiful red poinsettia with light green flecks… the variety is Glitter. It’s a new and very vigorous plant at Waukesha Floral this year.
Remember, when you choose a poinsettia, the actually flowers are not the brightly colored leaves, but the little yellow blooms in the centers. You would like the little yellow blooms to not be all open but in bud form to give the most longevity to the plant, like this plant. The yellow blooms are not even showing yet.
The most important thing is good drainage, as poinsettias don’t like wet roots. However, they don’t like to completely dry out either. Poke a hole in the decorative foil on the pot and use a saucer to protect your furniture!
