Euphorbia come in all; shapes and sizes but the Poinsettia is top of the pots!
After many failures at keeping my poinsettias going in pots & inside, I planted my 2 Christmas poinsettias outside this spring. They have thrived in my South Carolina hot sun and are huge in my opinion. My question is that someone told me the winter weather will kill them. Considering this may be true, what would you suggest I do to prevent that from happening? Can I cover them up to protect them without having to dig them up & put back in pots?
from my experience it’s ok to leave them outdoors if temps don’t drop too far below 60f 🙂
First, I never been in South Carolina so I don’t know what the weather is like. I have no experience with having poinsettia outside during winter but I would repot them and bring them inside the house. Poinsettia don’t like it cold, temperatures less than 15°C/59°F could kill them. However, I’m not sure, if just covering could protect them, but I don’t think so.
Thanks for your care tips they are very useful.
Never found any thing as comprehensive as this in England
Is it correct to refer to the red bracts that surround the small yellow flowers on poinsettia plants as “flowers?”
