Our decorated Poinsettia is the perfect holiday gift for the entire month of December.
The plant’s association with Christmas began in 16th-century Mexico, where legend tells of a girl, commonly called Pepita or Maria, who was too poor to provide a gift for the celebration of Jesus’ birthday and was inspired by an angel to gather weeds from the roadside and place them in front of the church altar. Crimson blossoms sprouted from the weeds and became poinsettias. From the 17th century, Franciscan friars in Mexico included the plants in their Christmas celebrations. The star-shaped leaf pattern is said to symbolize the Star of Bethlehem, and the red color represents the blood sacrifice through the crucifixion of Jesus.
Poinsettias are popular Christmas decorations in homes, churches, offices, and elsewhere across North America. They are available in large numbers from grocery, drug, and hardware stores. In the United States, December 12 is National Poinsettia Day.
When Pamela decorates a Poinsettia, you have a one-of-a-kind gift that will sparkle and shine through the holiday season. Festive decorations, bows, and even fragrant Christmas greens give the Poinsettia a stunning design for Christmas.
Order early! Poinsettias seem to have wings in our flower shop and they are usually sold out by the 15th of December!
