COLUMBIA, Mo. - While poinsettias are the most popular blooming holiday plant, if you are looking for a plant that can bloom for many years to come, try a holiday cactus, said a University of Missouri horticulturist.

"Given proper care, the holiday cacti have been known outlive their caretakers and provide years of brilliant color around Christmas," said David Trinklein. "The small effort required by these plants is well worth it when you consider the reward of seeing an 'heirloom' plant bloom year after year."

Holiday cacti can tolerate low light, but they do best in bright, indirect light. If you're going to put them outdoors during the summer, be sure to keep them in a shady or semi-shady location.
