Virtually Yours...the Exotic Plants Online Catalogue

Hi! We are so excited about a new project ... a virtual Exotic Plants online store where we will be able to offer you the same beautiful plants we've offerred locally, but in addition, open the doors to exotic plants and objects from all over the globe. I've been fortunate to visit some of these places and this will give me an excuse to do it even more! So, come take a look at our new holiday catalog...a mini version of what's to come!


Here are some pictures of the beautiful assortment of Poinsettias in our store right's amazing how many different kinds are available. Many people ask about how to keep these plants alive for future holidays. In truth it isn't easy. Native to Mexico, the Euphorbia pulcherrima grows like a weed...well, a weed. In our climate the freezes turn them to mush. It is not impossible however, for the ambitious. Poinsettias are wonderfully decorative for the holidays, and are welcomed gifts.
According to the horticultural website, Floridata, poinsettias can reach roof height if grown in the ground. Now, that would be something to see!
