Q:   My poinsettia has grown almost to the top of my roof which is about 12 feet tall.  I have never seen them grow this large, is it unusual?  

PoinsettiaA:   Most people want their poinsettias in pots to place around the house or their Christmas tree.  Most people do not want poinsettias to get big which is why you seldom see them tall.  However, if you plant them in the ground outside they may have a chance to reach heights up to 15 feet.
