Do you buy a poinsettia at Christmas? I do and its usually a deep dark red color, but this year I wanted a white one.
Fortunately, if dark red isn’t for you, there are lots of softer colors to choose from.

Source Winter Blush
Source Winter Roses. This is my least favorite. It looks old and shriveled up to me and nothing like a rose!
Source What a stunner! Strawberries and Cream.
Source Symphony of Freedom.
Ice Punch. This is a stunner too!
Here’s Orange Spice. Can you see this at Halloween through Christmas?
Source How about a Poinsettia in topiary form?
So, what’s your opinion of this Christmas icon? Like it or leave it?
I never keep my poinsettias and try to get them to bloom again. When they start dropping leaves and looking straggly which they inevitably do, out they go. I do appreciate their pop of color at Christmas though. They always heighten my Christmas spirit.
Did you know that poinsettias are not poisonous as once thought…….I read that somewhere recently.
*I finally found my white poinsettia and will post pictures soon. I have the perfect spot for it!
