Buy a 1-year-old Double Poinsettia plant with red-colored ‘bloom’. It is roughly 2′ tall and is kept in a 10″ pot.
Its scientific name is Euphorbia Pulcherrima while it is also known as Winter Rose due to its rose-like bloom in winters. Double Red Poinsettia has impressive double-forming flaming red (leaf) bracts, which are often mistaken for flower petals. The quite showy and full bracts have small yellow flowers in the center.
