Native to southern Mexico, this holiday harbinger came onto the season’s scene in 1828. Since then, it has become the highest-selling potted plant in history! Its “blooms” are actually modified colorful leaves called bracts, while its true flowers are yellow buds clustered in its center.
Place poinsettias near natural light inside a room about 60 to 70 degrees F. Avoid drafts, as these beauties are native to warmer climes. Keep soil moist but not soggy, and water when the soil begins to dry. If leaves wilt too much, it’s too late.
