The red and white colors of this poinsettia plant enhance the cheerful and happy nature of this Christmas plant. I am always attracted to things a bit out of the ordinary or "extra" so I was compelled to photograph this plant.
The poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) is a commercially important plant species of the diverse spurge family (Euphorbiaceae). The species is indigenous to Mexico. It is particularly well known for its red and green foliage and is widely used in Christmas floral displays. It derives its common English name from Joel Roberts Poinsett, the first United States Minister to Mexico, who introduced the plant to the US in 1825.
