This is an old post I had on my drafts from last summer. I tried to grow it again this season, but it was a failure, so is good to find this old draft to share it here. Many people like the way summer poinsettia looks. My plant did ok until the mid of summer, when it simply became mush one day in the morning. I believe it was the historical record heat. I recommend to leave the plant in half day sun(morning sun). Here in the extreme heat of the south the plant will die in full sun during the summer.
