Spotlight on Poinsettias

Posted

Poinsettias are among the most popular and distinguishable holiday plants.

Perfect as festive gifts or a living decoration, these brightly coloured beauties are bound to make a statement in any home.

Contrary to popular belief, poinsettias are not actually flowers, but rather the “petals” being bunches of upper leaves called bracts.

They are stunning with their foliage a quintessentially Christmas red and green combination. (They also appear in cream, lemon, peach, pink and with white and gold-splashed leaves).

They are native to South America and are referred to as” La Flor de la Nochebuena" meaning Flower of the Holy Night, or Christmas Eve.

Care:

-When conditions and care are right, they can grow up to 16 ft tall

-They are tropical plants so keep humidified and hydrated. No issues here with Austrialian Christmas in the middle of summer !

-Don’t flood the soil but keep the top moist. If the leaves start to turn mushy you need less water, if they go crisp and brown you need more water and less sunlight.
