The Christmas Poinsettia


Peace on earth will come to stay, When we live Christmas every day.  Helen Steiner Rice



The Christmas Poinsettia Native to Central America, especially an area of southern Mexico, where they flower during the winter. The Poinsettia is also known as the Christmas Star and Christmas flower.

While considered by the ancient Aztecs to be symbols of purity, in today’s language of flowers, red, white or pink poinsettias, symbolizes good cheer and success, and are said to bring wishes of mirth and celebration. National Poinsettia Day is December 12.

So easy to care for. Place where it will get the most sunlight. Keep watered -do not let soil become dry. To keep in bloom, maintain at a temperature of 65-70 during the day, move to a cooler place at night. Enjoy.                                                                                                                                                                        MERRY CHRISTMAS!
