Medium Red Poinsettia
This dripping red and green beauty hails from Mexico and regions in Central America, where it’s nice and warm and the months surrounding Christmas are hot and balmy. Scientifically known as the Euphorbia pulcherrima, the (medium-sized) poinsettia is favored in Christmas and other holiday displays because of it’s matching colors that thrive brightest during these months. The medium reaches approximately a foot high and wide when considering the leaf end to the opposite leaf end. Get cozy by the fire this holiday season with your new Christmas Poinsettia.
(Medium) Christmas Poinsettia Benefits
Our customers are fascinated by how the poinsettia has been used in the medical field in the past. Some have utilized parts of the plant to help with fever, pain, and as a laxative among other uses (Don’t try at home.)
Dressed in Their Holiday Best
Poinsettias have long bulb-shaped leaves that consist of illuminating crimson and rich hunter green hues that will dress up your space for the occasion. Set it as a centerpiece on the dinner or coffee table when you decorate this year.
Flowering with Holiday Cheer
The Christmas Poinsettia loves the holidays and flowers during the winter months. Demonstrating bright, cherry-red foliage makes this ruby beauty a great addition to the home. This houseplant also makes a great gift to family and friends.
Yellow Signs of Life
Right in the middle of the poinsettia’s vivid red leafy abyss are sprinkles of yellow. When observed closely they’re actually clustered buds containing cyathium. After the plant sheds its leaves it can reproduce new plants on its own. Since the plant has both male and female reproductive organs it’s also known as a monoecious or hermaphroditic plant.
