In one particular area of San Antonio where my grandmother lived, poinsettia plants grow past the rooftops. This plant has been there for at least 40 years or more. It dies to the ground during a hard freeze and reemerges in the spring.

The bracts on this at least 40 year old poinsettia plant are huge and more are being produced in December. (San Antonio, Tx.)
