Three individual Poinsettia Christmas decorations to brighten up the home at Christmas time.  Poinsettias are believed to bring good cheer and success to the household.

In the 1800’s the Poinsettia or Christmas Flower was introduced from Mexico to the USA by Joel Roberts Poinsett.  It was a century later that they became a traditional Christmas decoration.  It is believed that the flower and leaves represent the Star of Bethlehem, the red colour as the blood of Christ.

There are over 100 varieties of poinsettia today in shades of green, red, white and pink.  They are a winter blooming plant so make them ideal to be grown and sold in time for Christmas.  In Mexico where they originated, they can grow up to 10-15 feet.

I love the colours of poinsettias and try to have one in the house each year at Christmas.   Sometimes they can be very healthy & last a long time into the New Year other times they drop their leaves quite quickly – Helen
