ABOUT OUR CHRISTMAS POINSETTIA
Hello! I'm Robin the Red Poinsettia, also known as Euphorbia pulcherrima. Im here for a good time, not a long time! Treated well though, I can continue to bloom well after the festivities are over and possibly next year too!!! I will certainly bring some well needed Christmas decoration to any home or office with my distinctive bright red flowers.
Originally from Mexico and Central America where it was used by Aztecs for decorative and medicinal purposes. The Poinsettia has now become an icon of the Great British Christmas, just like our name for it..... Robin!
Small height (including nursery pot) 30cm; pot diameter 10cm.
QUICK POINSETTIA CARE GUIDE
Place by a well lit window, East-facing windows are best so they can catch morning sun and afternoon shade.
Only water when the soil feels dry, or you see the leaves wilting. Do not let your Poinsettia sit in water, remove from the decorative (outer) clay pot for watering and let them drain in the sink.
Keep your Poinsettia in a warm room and mist daily to re-create the tropical environment it came from.
