The Festive Popularity of Poinsettias Plants

Native to Mexico, Poinsettia plants have become an integral part of Christmas celebrations in the UK, with over 2 million sold every year!
Their vibrant radiant red and green hues of the flowers add a touch of festivity to any space. Their transformation into a beloved Christmas symbol was first attributed to a touching tale of a poor girl who offered the plants as a gift at a nativity service. The plants were later popularised by American botanist Joel Roberts Poinsett during his tenure as the US ambassador to Mexico and the Poinsettia has a complicated history.
