bloom'd Poinsettia Plant


The classic Christmas bloom, the poinsettia embodies just about everything about Christmas! With its pointed star shape and bright red leaves, it’s no wonder we’re seeing the official Christmas flower everywhere at the moment - from vibrant bunches to homemade wreaths.

Poinsettias got their reputation as a festive bloom thanks to an old Mexican legend. As it goes, a young girl picked weeds to give as a gift to baby Jesus and when she placed them at the bottom of the nativity scene, they bloomed into the bright red flowers we admire today.

Today, poinsettias make a stunning feature all on their own. If you feel like getting creative, weave them into a garland and wrap around staircases, or add them to your Christmas tree for a classic look. They also make a great centerpiece on the dining room table.
