POINSETTIA:
THE FLOWER OF
CHRISTMAS EVE

Once thought of as a "weed",
the poinsettia is native to Mexico
and widely associated with the
Christmas season.

In Mexico and Guatemala,
the poinsettia is called
La Flor de la Nochebuena
(flower of the Holy Night,
or Christmas Eve.)

This beautiful plant is a festive symbol
of the holiday season,
with over 100 variations and colors.
(My favorites are the RED varieties.)

Here's wishing you the happiest holiday
as Christmas approaches
with friends and family.
