Wait, don't toss those poinsettias to the curb! | CALS in the News | Scoop.it
Poinsettias have become the best-selling potted plants in the United States, and are second in popularity only to Christmas trees during the holiday season. Poinsettias don't have to be tossed to the curb with the trees and tinsel once the celebrating is over.

"Poinsettias cannot tolerate frost or freezing temperatures, so places in southern Arizona and other parts of the South that occasionally experience cooler temperatures are not good places to grow them outside," Warren said. Poinsettia's colored leaves, or bracts, have been hybridized over the years into more than 100 varieties, from the traditional red to pink, white, cream, burgundy and variegated. "Around July 4th, cut branches back again about half their length to encourage bushy plants," Warren said.
