Poinsettias do well in Lahore, perhaps they have gone out of fashion.

Imported Poinsettia in Pots don't perform well in Lahore and require great effort to re-bloom.
Thats why I was thinking how this tree type is performing so well in here. Any logic to that?

these are artificially forced to bloom... after 2-3 years their natural blooming cycle resolves...

So i should not do the effort of planting tree type poinsettia. As they will revert to green foliage after 2-3 years

Poinsettia have green leaves... these colorful ones are flowering bracts which emerge only during short day length...
