Plant Characteristics

The perfect Christmas gift and MORE - it is also the ideal gift to present on Dec. 12, National Poinsettia Day! The poinsettia is both a Christmas legend and an American Tradition.

The poinsettia is mistakenly thought of as only a seasonal plant when it can actually be enjoyed year round. It blooms throughout the Christmas season for at least 4 weeks. The plant can then be cut back and used as an attractive foliage plant. There is a wide array of magnificent varieties to choose from. Foliage types are available in dark, light, and uniquely incurved leaves. Bract shapes are available in many different shapes - V shaped, Oak shaped, incurved, and more.
