Why Poinsettias are the Flower of Christmas

Brant Florist Poinsettia

Poinsettias are officially classified as ornamental shrubs native to South America where they were originally referred to as “Flor de la Noche Buena”. This translates to the “Flower of the Holy Night”. Historians widely agree that the poinsettia was first used as a Christmas decoration in the 1600s when Franciscan monks used poinsettias during their Nativity ceremonies.

Mexican legend states that a young child was traveling to a community Nativity scene and realized that he forgot to bring a gift for Christ. He stopped half way, plucked green blooms from the roadside and carried them the rest of the way. Upon arrival, this child was ribbed by his peers for bringing such a plain gift. However, when the boy placed the blooms at the manger, a glorious red flower shined atop the greenery. This legend is central to the connection between poinsettias and the Christmas celebration.
