Garden Guru: Choosing Your Holiday Poinsettias - Foothills Sun Gazette
Poinsettias are naturally a leggy shrub and thus were sold as cut flowers. Plant breeding by Paul Ecke Ranch in Encinitas, California developed a hardier, compact, more vigorous plant and they became a holiday sensation as a potted plant. Paul Ecke Ranch remains a world leader in providing poinsettia plants.
Poinsettias are available in early blooming and later blooming varieties. They can be found in stores before Thanksgiving, but an early variety may not last the whole holiday season. After the flowers shed their pollen, the plant drops its bracts and leaves. For longer plant life, choose plants with little or no yellow pollen showing, when the cyathia are in bud stage. Look for plants with strong stems, healthy dark green foliage and no wilting. After purchase, it is advisable to take the plant home as soon as possible and not leave it in the car while doing other shopping. Remove the plastic wrapper on arrival at home.
To make your poinsettia last, give it as much natural light as you can, six hours of indirect light per day, avoiding hot south-facing windows. Water the plant when the soil in the pot feels dry, usually once a week. To water the plant, remove it from the foil decorative cover and water until the water drains out of the pot. Avoid wetting the foliage. Allow the plant to drain well before returning to placement with a saucer under the plant.
Overwatering is a common plant killer. Keep the plant away from heat sources, drafts and temperatures under 45 degrees or above 80 degrees. Optimal temperature range for the plant is 65 to 70 degrees. The plant is blooming, but not growing at this time of year, so fertilizer is not needed. Poinsettias cannot tolerate a frost and will be killed if temperatures are below 50 degrees for an extended period. For this reason, poinsettias are decorative holiday house plants.
The red poinsettia remains a popular favorite but new varieties continue to be developed to add excitement to holiday season decorating:
Ice Punch (Ecke Ranch) has streaks of white on the red bracts, resembling frost on the plant.
Carousel Pink (Syngenta Flowers) has salmon pink wavy bracts.
Winter Blush (Ecke) has peach and yellow around the bract veins and cream etching on the margins of the bracts. It makes a showy and strong plant for a gift. It also lasts well in average home conditions.
Cinnamon Star (Syngenta) has luminous coral colored bracts and is a special poinsettia variety to display starting around Thanksgivin... Oct 12, 2018
Autumn planting tips and ideas to liven up the garden
Over at Anderson's La Costa Nursery, at 400 La Costa Ave., in Encinitas, Nursery Manager Steven Froess said creating summer color in the garden for fall is not as difficult as it may seem.
"For some summer color in the garden, there is lots to choose from. Some of my favorites include: pentas (they come in a variety of colors and are great for hummingbirds and butterflies), tecoma hybrids ‘Lydia', ‘Bells of fire', and ‘Sparky' all bloom almost all summer and love the heat!
"There are some great mandevillea hybrids that do great in pots, and look tropical but are more durable with pink, white, and red tubular flowers," Froess said.
If you want to plant bulbs when the weather cools down a bit, Froess said fall bulbs, usually include: paperwhites and amaryllis, and there are others but those are the main two the nursery usually stocks.
Don't forget veggies and fruits for fall either, he said: "You can save seeds from any of your summer crops; most people do cilantro, peppers, tomatoes, watermelons, pumpkins and squash."
Foress agrees with LaFromboise in that fall is such a great time of the year to plant herbs, but only plant the hardy ones such as thyme, oregano, parsley, cilantro, and chives, because these will survive the colder weather.
"Cold tender ones such as basil, tarragon and dill, won't be available and won't do well," he said. "Cooler season flowers would include: pansies, violas, ornamental kale and cyclamen, to name a few. Shrubs and trees of all types usually survive the best when planted in the fall, due to the cooler temperatures and hopefully rainy winter season that follows before spring."
And like LaFromboise, Froess said succulents are always a good choice regardless of the time of year.
"Succulents are definitely in still," he said. "Not only for their low-water use, but the textures and colors you can create are so endless, they can live indoors and outdoors, some are highly collectible and very low maintenance."
As you sip your pumpkin latte and get ready for the upcoming holiday season, planning (and planting) your fall garden can be a fun, and exciting time that will hopefully yield a great autumn crop.

Stunning streetscapes are inspiration for gardeners
Here are a few of my favorites.Encinitas: Leucadia Boulevard exit from I-5Exit I-5 heading east on Leucadia Boulevard and you drive through an area that was once all greenhouses and flower fields. In the late 1990s, the city of Encinitas completed a 4-mile-long connection between the freeway and El Camino Real to the east. Nowell and Associates Landscape Architects were contracted to design a streetscape that honored the community’s horticultural heritage. Principal designer Greg Nowell designed the hard surfaces, including the unusual undulating sidewalks, while landscape architect Chris Drayer took the lead for the planting plan and plant palette.Drayer knew that the streetscape would be experienced at 35 miles per hour. He devised bold plantings that would unfold “like music,” in a composition Drayer describes as “continuous but varies ... (it) has recognizable themes and measures. As you go along, the original measure disappears as a theme, new elements are introduced, and then you go back to the original theme ... ”Now 16 years old, the mature streetscape flows with large shapes and textures in gray, blue and deep green. In the center median, tall pines and prehistoric looking floss silk trees ma... (The San Diego Union-Tribune)May 7, 2017
