Fun Facts: Poinsettia

Tomorrow, December 12th is National Poinsettia Day! Legend has it that the poinsettia’s association with Christmas comes from a Mexican tale. The story goes that a child, with no means for a gift, gathered humble weeds from the side of the road to place at the church alter on Christmas Eve. As the congregation watched, the weeds turned into brilliant red and green flowers!


Celebrate this national day with a beautiful plant and a few of these fun facts to share with family and friends!
