Home Living : December 8th 2009
6 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, December 8, 2009 Shades of pink HOMELIVING In the garden Judy Horton is an adviser for Yates Potted poinsettias in their traditional yuletide red have become popular Christmas decorations, but a new poinsettiaavailable this yearis revolutionising the scene. Instead of the familiar red, princettia comes in shades of pink. But whatreally makes these new plants stand out is that, instead of one or two flowers, they have multiple branches topped with blooms. This means that each princettia pot looks as if it's filled with a pink bouquet. Princettia cangooncreating a show for many weeks because the bracts that provide the colour are not true flowers -- they're much tougher and longer-lasting than mere petals. Keep potted princettia indoors in a well- lit position (out of direct sun), water when the mix feels dry and feed after the show is over. If you can, then take it outside into a sunny, frost-free spot. There's every chance your princettia will flower again, but next time it will be in autumn or early winter, which is the normal blooming season for poinsettias. Poinsettia plants that are grown for Christmas are tricked into flowering by manipulating light levels in the nursery glasshouse. With its compact growth and abundant flowering, princettia makes an ideal living Christmas gift. And it gives in another way, too, because, for every plant sold, 50c goes to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. yates.com.au built-in WARDROBES FACTORY & SHOWROOM Unit 1, 183-185 McCredie Rd, Guildford 9632 5444 Lic.
