Poinsettias are a beautiful and easy way to decorate for Christmas since they have the traditional colors of red and green for the holiday season, bloom in December and are appropriately named the "Christmas flower." Also available in a variety of different hues such as pink, white and yellow, poinsettias are especially beautiful when they are grouped together with white candles or placed on a fireplace mantle. With more than $200 million in sales every holiday season, it is obvious that the poinsettia is a very popular plant.
