Peak poinsettias

By Jeneen Wiche

It is time to start decorating for the holidays, which for many includes the poinsettia. The poinsettia has been a fixture in American homes as a holiday decoration for as long as most of us can remember. I think it is fair to say that it is considered the “official” Christmas flower.

The poinsettia is native to Mexico and has been recognized for its beauty and function for centuries.
