  • I seriously cannot believe it is December. It is time to start decorating for the holidays which includes the poinsettia.  
    The poinsettia has been a fixture in American homes as a holiday decoration for as long as most of us can remember.  
    I think it is fair to say that it is considered the ‘official’ Christmas flower. In fact the U.S. Census Bureau says that over 75 million plants were sold last holiday season.  
    The poinsettia is native to Mexico and has been recognized for its beauty and function for centuries.
