    huh, I used to work for a local greenhouse garden center. they specialized in the poinsettias every years. in fact it was what made most of their money for the year. that place grew more than that in their green houses. they had 36 greenhouses packed with them of every color. it was beautiful there.

    in fact their online site says over 17,000 plants grown this year. now that is alot of pointsettiias

    They are pretty. I usually go to the sales at the botanical gardens like Fairchild in Miami. They have so many cool plants its like being in a candy store.
