Oak Leaf Poinsettia

My son brought me these lovely poinsettias the other day and it took me a minute to discover what was unique about them.
While most poinsettias have tear-drop shaped leaves and 'petals' (which are actually brackets), these have oak-leaf shaped foliage.
I typically don't bother planting my holiday poinsettias in the garden when the season is over. I don't find them very attractive in their natural state in the garden, but these may just find a home.
