History of the Poinsettia - Discovered in the early 1800’s the poinsettia plant is named after Joel Roberts Poinsett, first U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, who imported it from Mexico in 1828.
The legend of the poinsettia tells of a poor village child in Mexico who wanted to give a gift at Church but had no money. In desperation, they picked some weeds on their way to leave as their gift. The story tells that the child asked God to help them and God answered by turning the weeds into a beautiful star-shaped flower with bright coloured leaves. The large poinsettia has been a symbol of belief ever since.
It was once believed poinsettias were poisonous, this is a misconception - although not edible, the milky susbstance within is a form of latex and should not be ingested. Scientific evidence of the poinsettia's safety is well documented, and all poinsettias are actually helpful in removing pollutants from indoor air.
