Poinsettia Cultivar


Poinsettia Cultivar
Euphorbia pulcherrima
(yoo-FOR-bee-uh) (pul-KAIR-ih-muh)

Let’s kick off the holiday season here at Digital Flower Pictures.com with a Poinsettia picture. I am not really sure what variety of Poinsettia this is but it captured my fancy with its beautiful shading and gracefulness. It seems just the other day during a trip to the nursery the Poinsettias were still young, small and green and then when I went back last week they were a sea of color. Seeing the huge greenhouse with its strips of red, white and pink running down the benches was uplifting even though the holidays and Poinsettias aren’t my favorite.

I like the unusual colors in this poinsettia. (makes a nice change to the red ones)

Every year I debate with myself about buying a poinsettia. Some are very pretty....some years I just think Christmas decorations make the house crowded. The one you have pictured is nice.
