Poinsettia Plants (Seasonal)
About Poinsettia Plants (Seasonal)
The poinsettia plant is a commercially important plant species of the diverse spurge family. The species is indigenous to Mexico. It is particularly well known for its red and green foliage and is widely used in Christmas floral displays. Make this classic easy-to-care-for favorite a part of your holiday decor.
Christmas charm is what these amazing Poinsettias plant hold. The bright petals of Poinsettias, which look like flowers, are actually the bunch of upper leaves of the plant, called bracts. Poinsettia flowers are small, green or yellow, and grow inconspicuously in the center of each leaf bunch.
These brilliant colors of the bracts come from photoperiodism, which means the response to proportions of light and dark within a 24 hour cycle. The more light the plant receives during the day, the brighter the color will be. Put your poinsettia plant in your sunny window to enjoy its colorful bracts.
