Valentine's Day Gift Idea

I just love giving live plants for any special occasion, so I was so excited when our friends at Costa Farms introduced this amazing hybrid called Pick Me Pink just in time to celebrate Valentine's Day. 

By the looks of her, you might think she's a poinsettia, but she's actually a euphorbia hybrid produced from crosses between the poinsettia and other euphorbia species.

This stunning annual has almost fluorescent pink petals with a pale edge, which make this not only a wonderful gift for your sweetheart, but a lovely addition to your Valentine’s Day dĂ©cor as well.

I know I'll be on the hunt for one of these! For more info and care tips, visit Costa Farms.

Not to be a jerk about this, but this plant is from the breeding of the Paul Ecke Ranch, and is an interspecific Euphorbia/poinsettia cross correctly named LUV U Pink. It is neither new, nor an exclusive to Costa, and was, in fact, introduced to the world in general by me on the Martha Stewart Show after we trialed it for 2 years. It is a great plant, but by no means a Costa discovery or introduction.
