Red Beauty

I just never get tired of seeing these mature poinsettias in people's pretty, and they've been there for some time. I have a feeling today's plants have been bred/hybridized/messed with to the point that they probably won't thrive like these hardier specimens. So cool!

Gorgeous. They would die outside at our house but we get them for indoors!
