It is estimated that over 34 million poinsettia plants will be sold this Christmas, and that number represents 25% of all the potted plants sold this year. The king of the Christmas flowers is prolific during this season, seen everywhere from corporate lobbies to nativity scenes. Ron & Alicia Robinson Florist is proud to offer high-quality, long-lasting poinsettia plants for every name on your list - but why is this classic flowering plant so strongly associated with this holiday?
The legend of the poinsettia plant began in Mexico, which is where the plant was discovered by Joel Roberts Poinsett. Locals told Poinsett of the story of a young girl who wished to bring a gift to the Christ child on the first Christmas, but she was poor and had no means to bring an offering. Placing a bouquet of raggedy wildflowers at His feet in a gesture of love, the weeds transformed into the beautiful poinsettia. Read More about Traditional Poinsettia – Christmas Flowers »
