National Poinsettia Day

Today, December 12th, is National Poinsettia Day.  Here are 8 interesting facts about poinsettias:

  • There are more than 100 varieties of poinsettias.
  • The colored part of the poinsettia is not a flower but is actually a colored leaf.
  • Although poinsettias are not poisonous, it’s best to keep them away from pets.  Especially puppies and kittens.  The sap can make them sick.
  • Some people with latex allergies have had a skin reaction after touching the leaves of a poinsettia.
  • Poinsettias are perennial shrubs that were once considered weeds.
  • ‘Prestige Red’ is the most popular color.
  • Poinsettias are not frost-tolerant.  They are grown in coastal climates and can reach 10 feet tall.
  • Poinsettias are the best-selling potted plant in the United States and Canada.

Every year we are delighted, here at Verne & Ellsworth Hann, to receive a beautiful poinsettia from one of the companies we advertise with.  This annual gift puts us all in the holiday spirit!
