Am wondering if I can plant it outside (weather permitting) and then what do I do with it?

    Pointcettias are perinnels...they just don't like cold weather, so keep them inside until the weather is warm at night...they will grow and be green all summer

    poinsettias are not perennials.they are a holiday plant.if you live in a southern climate you can plant them outside.

    Hopefully this will help. I hope the one I bought this year makes it through to next Christmas. Good luck with it!

    poinsettias are tropical plants, they can be planted outside after the danger of frost is past. It will become a beautiful bushy plant with dark green leaves. I always get compliments when I do this. The red leaves are actually called braks and will not c back on. My mother in law‘s would get about 4 feet tall in southern IL. I’m in south central KS and mine usually got about 3 feet tall and around
