The scientific name for those showy red, pink or white flowers which seem to appear everywhere around Christmas time is Euphorbia pulcherrina . Most people around here know poinsettas as potted house plants, but in their more tropical native habitat—Mexico and South America—they grow into large 12 foot bushes. To make house plants they are usually propogated by cuttings taken early in the summer from stock which has been saved over the winter. Winters in Austin are generally mild enough that the plants growing outdoors are killed back to the ground, but the rootstock survives and provides new growth for cuttings in the spring. Poinsetta plants will form flowers whenever the nights are long and the days are short, and thus, by controlling the length of their days, one can force them to make flowers at any time of the year. Handmade Haircuts at People's Prices 1512 West 5th 477-8280 472-4978 Jay & Charlie BroofcraMfi Look carefully at the next poinsetta flower you see. What at first appears to be a single, large flower is not, to a careful observer, a single flower at all. Rather it is a cluster of flowers surrounded by brightly colored leaves called bracts. The flowers themselves are yellow and somewhat corn shaped. At the top of the flower is the pistil (the egg producing part), and surrounding it is a cluster of anthers (the parts which make pollen). To the side is a conspicuous protrubance—like a little volcano—which is a gland that makes large quantities of nectar. Sometimes the winters in Austin are mild enough that poinsettas will bloom outdoors (this winter is a good candidate!), so don't just throw your plants away after the bracts fade. Keep it until the spring when there is no danger of frost and plant it outdoors. A final warning: the milky sap which oozes out of any wound on the plant is poisonous—don't eat it, smoke it, or shoot it up. You will get sick if you do.
