The Poinsettia is regarded as to be the official Christmas flower of the United States. Their inclination to bloom for the duration of the early winter months blended with their vivid purple, star shaped leaves, make them the ideal Xmas plant. Incredibly, till just a pair of generations ago the Poinsettia did not even exist in the United States.
