Poinsettia Rules

My Mum’s favourite Christmas plant, but why do they never seem to last past Christmas? If they do you never seem to see that red foliage again. Mmm, does anyone have any tips for keeping Poinsettias?

    This card is gorgeous. The green backgrond just makes those Poinsettias pop. Love all the doodle stamping around the edges. Sorry, but I can’t help you re why Pointsettias don’t last. Perhaps you should Google it. Hugs. Desire
