Euphorbia punicea (Jamaican Poinsettia)

The Jamaican Poinsettia is native to Jamaica, and a relative of the Christmas Poinsettia.  Unlike the poinsettia you buy at Christmas, this large shrub or small tree, 12-15′, flowers year round.  In Jamaica, this small tree grows in limestone soils with little rainfall, so it makes an ideal candidate for S. Florida, when planted in a sunny location.

We have various sizes ranging from small seedlings to flowering size specimens.  Come take a look at one growing in the ground to give you an idea what to expect.
