Poinsettia plants usually last the Christmas season before most die and are discarded (until another one is brought home the following year(. But for one Canadian man, his poinsettia plant has lasted for 19 years and continues to grow, which is fine by him as the plant holds a very special place in his heart.
Frankie Allison says that his late wife, Maxine, won the plant in a call-in radio contest on Christmas Eve in 1996. Three days later, she unexpectedly passed away from a heart attack. Frankie has had the plant ever since.
