I don't understand what you're asking? Do we just have them? Or do we have them to trade?
Here's what's left of mine now that our days are getting so warm. I'll be putting them in the ground soon.

I have one growing (and blooming) in a pot, in my enclosed Florida room - 2 years old now - too cold to grow them outdoors here.

Nine, all that's in the pot is the one Poinsettia, two variegated Aztec Grass (Liriope), and some Alyssum. It looked a lot better before the Poinesttia drooped!

Kay, that's cool you can keep them in pots. We're not "supposed" to be able to grow them as perennials here, either. But everywhere I look, businesses and subdivisions and my neighbors have them in the ground. This will be my first year trying it out. I've had it outside in that pot since October... when it was still toasty warm here... and it has made it through the 2 or three light frosts in December, and more recently the two frost nights we just had.
I'll be watching it closely after putting it in the ground in case I need to put it back in a pot.

Any that I get I put in the ground after Christmas and they can last for several years or die within the next year. They aren't grown to last more then the one season, so we are lucky when they do. One time I had a couple last for 4 years and were about 4 feet tall, but that hasn't happened again.

Well, that's discouraging. LOL!
Is it the heat of summer that kills them? Or the frosts in winter? What's their stinkin' problem?

Here's one that's in my neighborhood that's really nice...it looks to be about 3 or 4 years old looking at the size of the trunk? There's actually several of them in my area that grow in the ground.

Like Katkin, I have planted several in the ground that have lasted anywhere form a few months to just a couple of years and either die from frost or just die for whatever reasons.

9crow, maybe they grow them differently there. But here they are only intended to last the Christmas season and more than that is a bonus.

I put mine in the ground after Christmas last year, and now they're doing great. It's like a shrub. I guess they need long periods of darkness, like twelve hours or more, before they will turn red. So mine are green most of the time. They're great.
