Close [x] Sunset How to Live in the West

Pairing Plants

For dramatic effect, try pairing poinsettias with other colorful houseplants.
Toss the foil wrap that adorns their pots and group poinsettias of your choice with bromeliads, caladiums, or ivy.
Simple containers are best -- the plants should take center stage. Here, 'Success Coral' poinsettias (six plants, each in a 6-inch pot) surround a single Guzmania, also in a 6-inch pot. The arrangement, best viewed from overhead, is perfect on a coffee table or by an entry.

After the Holidays:
Cut back plants to two buds, reduce watering, and store in a cool place indoors until the danger of frost has passed. In summer, the plants look refreshing in patio pots.
