"Luv" It!

It's always exciting to watch the poinsettias come into full color!  The past few weeks we've been enjoying the sea of green plants turning white, burgundy, red (of course!), and all sorts of variations in between. This season we've been especially enjoying the transformation of the "Luv U Pink" euphorbia hybrid.  Technically this isn't a poinsettia, it's a euphorbia hybrid (but still in the poinsettia family).  

You can see some slight differences from traditional poinsettias in its bract shape and coloring; it also had been bred to eliminate the little yellow centers, called cyathia, like you will see on traditional poinsettias.

The pictures barely do the electric pink color justice.  I don't know about you, but I think they're pretty irresistible!
