This time of year nurseries are full of poinsettias and I could swear I see new varieties just about every year. Poinsettias are named after an amatey botanist named Joel Robert Poinsett (1779-1851), who introduced the plant to the United States from Mexico in 1825. This beautiful plant requires very little care. It needs bright, indirect light away from drafts and only water when the soil feels dry to the touch. Poinsettias do not like wet roots, so make sure that the container they are in allows for good drainage.
