With its familiar star-shaped leaves and iconic red color, the poinsettia is instantly recognizable as the official flower of the Christmas season. From hotel lobbies to church sanctuaries, the flower is used as decor in virtually every venue at this time of year. At Schaaf Floral, we are eager to help you whether you are looking to embellish an office, or to send Christmas poinsettias to a loved one. Which poinsettia is right for you?
Did You Know?
The poinsettia’s vivid petals are not petals at all but leaves (also called bracts). The flower is actually the small yellow cluster in the middle of the bracts.
The traditional potted poinsettia plant makes a great gift for colleagues, customers, and those you wish to thank for a job well done. In order to guarantee that their plant will last long after the holidays, include a small card with easy care instructions.
How to Care for Your Poinsettia
The plant prefers temperatures between 65-75 degrees. Drafts – either hot or cold – will cause the leaves to drop. Do not let the leaves touch a cold window or they will wilt. Water the poinsettia when the soil gets dry to the touch, and drain any extra water. Then just enjoy!
