Poinsettias - Christmas Flowers.
Beautiful Christmas flowers made from recycled materials: Plastic bottles. An environmentally safe project. (12/22/2007)
Poinsettias (Euphorbia pulcherrima) are flowers of Mexican origin, native to the Pacific coast of the United States, some parts of central and southern Mexico (including the Mexican Pacific coast), and a few localities in Guatemala. They are named after Joel Roberts Poinsett, the first United States Ambassador to Mexico (technically first U.S. envoy to Mexico)1, who introduced the plant in the U.S. in 1825.
