A Rainbow of Poinsettias

PoinsettiaThe redder the better, especially if they are poinsettias.

The Aztecs cultivated poinsettias near present day Cuernavaca. Today there are pink, white, orange, and even multi-colored poinsettias, all hybridized to complement any holiday décor.

The designer colors are beautiful, but many still prefer the traditional holiday red.

To keep the bright red bracts of your potted poinsettias at their peak, place them in bright light, maintain approximately 50 percent humidity, and don't over-water them.
