Plant Bio

Tis' the season of the houseplant. We can't think of a more festive way to introduce the season than this classic and absolutely beautiful holiday plant.

The Poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) is one of the holiday season's best picks to make your season cheery and bright. The bracts (leaves that turn color) start transforming into their vibrant color when the days get shorter, making it the perfect time of the season to enjoy their spectacular colors.

Fun Facts

Did you know the so-called 'flowers' are really leaves called "bracts" that turn color as the days get shorter during the fall and winter months? The first US Ambassador to Mexico, Joel Poinsett, brought these plants back from Taco, Mexico and started growing them in South Carolina. It's name is derived from the Ambassador. Poinsettias grow as large outdoor shrubs in Madagascar (an island off the eastern coast of Africa) and bloom during the holiday season. Hence why they have adopted it as their national emblem!
