Poinsettia

In the late 1820’s Joel Roberts Poinsett sent cuttings of Euphorbia pulcherrima from Mexico to the United States.  When people saw that the bracts of this species turned red around Christmas, it was put into commercial production for holiday sale.  Thus, the poinsettia became a favorite emblem of Christmas.  By the mid-1900’s, poinsettia breeders began to experiment with bract color.  Today, poinsettias come in a range of colors and are the top selling potted flowering plant each year.
