You should buy your plants now, these are early bloomers and if you plant them later in your yard they'll bloom at this time next year. I'm sure you know that the colored red leaves are not the actual bloom, those little yellow flowers in the middle are, pinch those off if you want to keep your red leaves from falling off.
Don't water them too much and take the plastic wrapping off the flower pot to help the excess water to drain off or your plant may get root rot.
Keep your plants in a sunny area, usually a window facing south or west and never put them near a heating vent or anything warm, they hate that.
I hope this helps and enjoy your Holiday Poinsettias!
