Arizona poinsettia

DrBoo(z9Arizona)October 2, 2005

Hi gang! I see so many new names and also so many of the older ones! It has been so long since I posted I could not even remember what my password was. How sad is that???

But, good news:

I finally got a digital camera. But have no clue how to show you a Arizona poinsettia Jim Dennis gave me a 3 years ago! It was a teeny shoot and now I have two and they are gorgeous!

Help...

There must be an easier way to do this...Trolip, where are you?
But for now and so Jim Dennis can see what became of his little shoot, click here.

Hiya Becky! Gald to see ya post. I can't see the photo, it wants me to sign up for shutterfly. I use the gallery page- just save the photo to your computer, pull up a post in the gallery section, click browse, find the photo's file on your computer and click on it. Then hit submit. DON'T preview, 'cuz you lose the photo. Then waaalaa, there it is...

Welcome back!

Flickr has been great for me. Upload the picture, and have several sizes to choose from... then it gives you the code to link. Easy as pie.

Glad to see you around!!

So happy the AZ Poinsettia grew for you. They are neat plants. Looking forward to the picture.

It faces west...can you even believe it? Loves water....
This photo was taken three weeks ago and it is much larger now. Sorta took a long time to thrive because I had it in a shady spot under my back porch. It never grew much so I had no idea that it was this beautiful.

I have no idea how to propagate but certainly will share
(at the next gathering I can attend) if I can figure it out.

I have boo-koo of these plants growing along the irrigation ditch behind my house. They seem to propagate on their own and create little forests of pretty poinsettias. It's pretty shady back there so I didn't know they like sun. Maybe I'll dig a couple up and pot them.

They are very sun and drought tolerant, but will thrive in shade as well. They EASILY reproduce via seeds and you can transplant the little guys into pots to give to ALL your friends!

OK, who wants an AZ poinsettia? I have to build up the berm along my back fence and in doing so will have to move these pretty plants?

Dear Becky-

We missed you and your sweet ways. I'm sure almost none of us who know you can look at a spider plant or a mural and not think of you! I'm really glad to hear from you again. Have you caught up a little bit? Will you be around for long? I hope so.

Sorry, too that you weren't at the swap. I'd love to have another one soon, so hopefully any of the newbies will get their obligatory spider plant and the pleasure of your smile.
