Who can blame poinsettia-growers for wanting to expand their market beyond Christmas? So they've created these
varieties that kinda resemble roses, or close enough to suggest them for Valentine's Day. At least that's the plan.
So whadaya think? Could you go for something like this instead of, you know, those roses that won't last as long? Me, my favorite gifts are plants that'll grow for years in the ground – a sign of tightwadedness, I suppose.
