@whitesusan my poinsettia was taken from an established plant not the Xmas potted variety. Poinsettia are early winter bloomers in Australia. It is growing in a warm protected position along the back fence. It does get affected by the cold and wind once winter really sets in as they need a tropical climate to really thrive.
@brightcolours 😱😱😱 nooooooooo. Anyway they look better in a cheap red/gold pot and sold by the hundreds in our supermarkets at Xmas time, only for nearly everyone to kill them around February. @sue1953 healthy looking plant - well done!
