PPR holiday decor MAIN

STAFF PHOTOS/KELLI CATANA The poinsettia is one of the most popular holiday plants and comes in hundreds of varieties. This "glitter red" poinsettia is one of the types available locally this year. Care for your poinsettia by keeping it out of direct sunlight for at least six hours a day, watering when the soil feels dry to the touch and by not exposing it to temperatures below 50 degrees. If you have to transport your poinsettia, use a roomy shopping bag to protect it from chilly wind.
