Trimming your home with vibrant colours of red and green stirs up the brightest and best feelings of Christmas, of the holiday season, of rituals and of traditions passed through the generations. And when it comes to holiday red, what could make more of a statement of grace than the unequaled beauty of a poinsettia?

Want to make a bold holiday impression? Arrange multiple poinsettias together to create a burst of bright Christmas reds and greens. Showcase your poinsettias as a focal point on a table or in a window – at home or at the office. Wherever a poinsettia is, an unbridled and joyful message is sent: Christmas is coming!

Early in the holiday season choose a few Poinsettias as vibrant messengers of the oncoming holidays. Get creative in their placement and let their unequaled brilliance stir feelings of goodwill and cheer. As the holiday season moves merrily along the red flowers of your poinsettias will keep the party going, raising spirits and adding a festive touch.

Don’t fear that the poinsettia may be harmful to your animals or children. It’s not! It’s definitely not a poisonous plant. University researchers have tested it, and the The American Medical Association has confirmed it. It’s a bit of an urban myth, really!

To get as much joy as possible out of your poinsettia, please use the following tips for its care. First of all protect it from the cold! So have it wrapped well when you buy it in cold weather. Place it in a cool, sunny location away from drafts. Water whenever the soil feels dry, but never let the pot sit in water. Always pour off excess water from its saucer.

Make yourself a promise this holiday season: Welcome poinsettias into your home and ring the bell joyfully loud: Christmas is here! Christmas is here!
