Poinsettias: A daylily gardener’s winter smile :-)

My daylily gardens are under a few inches of mulch as it spits snow.  My family is headed home after a Thanksgiving visit.  Christmas and winter are upon us.  What is a daylily hobbiest to do?  How about invest in some cool colored Poinsettias?

I am working from home, so I am really enjoying my indoor garden this year.  And, poinsettias are cool because the blooms last most of the winter months.  Then, come spring, they and the amaryllis can grow strong for next winter by hanging out between the blooming daylilies in my garden.

I am trying to learn the names of the poinsettias this year.  So, bear with me and don’t take this as gospel!  This one is called Picasso, I believe:

And, this one is called Pink Carousel:

This one is Mars Marble:

The one below also looks like Mars Marble.  This one has a cool half-and-half effect of the hybridizing.  (PS that is why I got a second one like this!)

This one is White Star, I believe:

The one below I purchased last year for Thanksgiving.  It was a very pretty orange.  It is just starting to put out bracks now, so I am guessing when I say it could be Cinnamon Star. PS – I have new ideas to improve my blooming process next year.

This is a Sonora White Glitter:

This one may be Ice Chrystals:

And, just a guess, this could be Premium Lipstick Pink:

The one below is a purple/burgundy color with pink marbles.  I looked and could not find a clear match.  If any readers have ideas on the name of this variety – or any others – please let me know!

Next up, the Amaryllis.  See you then!  Thank heaven for the sanity that winter blooms bring!  Who else loves these???
