Poinsettias seem to love being put outdoors in the summer in our area. They can do so well that it can become a challenge to find a space for them indoors. This should be no surprise because in their native habitats they are shrubs that might grow more than 10 feet tall.

But we prize them for their colorful leaves and it can be hard to get them to put on a display in time for the holidays. Here is some good cultural information that should help you continue to take good care of this lovely plant:
