This orange one is growing in one of my client's garden in South Pasadena. And the color is really that bright! Research tells that the flowers are bird pollinated. So enjoy those hummingbirds!

Poinsettias are native to Mexico so they sometimes do well planted in the ground here in SoCal. It always seem that the fancy varieties do not. I have seen them grown in gardens and they get about 7 feet tall! I was taught by a friend to prune them on St. Patrick's Day and Independence Day to manage them well.
Enjoy the holiday colors!
