Poinsettia History

Poinsettia History

Artist Irina Sztukowski gives the tour into Poinsettia plant history and its Symbolic Meaning:

Poinsettias are beautiful plant that originally came from Mexico. They were named in honor of America’s first ambassador to Mexico, Joel Poinsett who brought the plants to America in 1828. Look carefully at this plant: what does it remind you? The Mexicans in the eighteenth century identified this plant with the religious symbol, the Star of Bethlehem. That is how the Poinsettia became associated with the Christmas season. The red that you see is not a flower itself. The actual flower of the poinsettia is in the middle; it is quite small and has almost not noticeable yellow drops of color. But look at the surrounding the flower leaves. They are large, and bright, and as the dress of the actor that gives us ability to perceive his role the poinsettia red leaves dress up the flowers giving them a new festive meaning.
