A typical poinsettia plant can last several months inside, but Frankie has managed to care for his for nearly twenty years – that’s two decades! This feat not only astonishes Frankie’s friends and family, but it also amazes plant specialists in the Halifax, Nova Scotia area.
After 19 years of care, the poinsettia plant has grown to be almost five feet tall, and it weights over 100 pounds. In fact, it’s so big, that Frankie can no longer see out his window!
Every Christmas season, the poinsettia plant blossoms, and it reminds Frankie of his lovely wife. It’s almost as if she is always there with him during the holiday season.
