The flower is made up of a cluster of small yellow flowers (cyathia) surrounded by a series of colored modified leaves (bracts). History. The poinsettia is native to Mexico. The plant’s significance as a symbol of purity came long before that with the Indians of Taxco during the time of Montezuma. The Indians used the plant to create dyes and medicines. Franciscan priests who settled Taxco began to use the plant in the Fiesta of Santa Pesebre, a nativity procession, because of its great color and its seasonal bloom time. The poinsettia was first introduced to the United States in 1825 by J. R. Poinsett, ambassador to Mexico. Plant Selection. Check the following list when choosing a poinsettia: • Foliage all the way to the base of the plant. • A plant that has not been stored for very long in a paper or plastic sleeve. • No more than 25 percent of the cyathia open. You will be able to see small amounts of pollen collecting on the colorful bracts when many cyathia have opened. • A plant that has not been crowded out by other plants—a flat side or yellowing area. • A plant that can support its own weight and does not need string or wire supports around it. • A plant without disease or insect problems—disfigured or discolored new as well as established growth (shriveled or yellowed leaves), or damaged stems, leaves, or bracts.
