Poinsettia for Christmas

Poinsettias are a beautiful display of Christmas colors no matter where you live. The wonderful thing about Christmas in Florida is you can plant those poinsettias into your landscape for a year around pleasure.

How to plan poinsettias outdoors:

You can buy poinsettias in beautiful arrangements to display indoors or simply as poinsettia seedlings to plant into your landscape. These can be found at most garden centers.

When planting:

  • Plant in full sun
  • Plant in moist, well-drained soil. They can be planted in any soil.
  • Fertilize once a month
  • Prune in early spring after the plant is done blooming and frost danger has passed
