Also known as the Christmas flower or Christmas star, Poinsettia is known for its bright winter colors – but did you know that the colorful part of this tree is not in its flowers?

What catches your eye is actually a modified leaf called BRACS. This brightly colored structure surrounds many small flowering parts of the tree, called cythia.

Plant breeders have adopted this species Euphorbia palcherima and have created a great selection of poinsettias growing in different shades of red, pink, white, yellow and green.

And some of them with miscellaneous, mottled, marble or stained patterns. The ‘jingle’ type is known as ‘glitter’ pointstitus and features light spots on a hard background – it is reminiscent of snowfall. The “pepper” types seem to have been washed off with a layer of light color.

There are a few more fancy plants that have a few surprises in store – so be sure to read on to find out more!

No matter what colour or pattern you choose, be compelled to be a farmer (or three) who will capture your tree-loving heart.

Do you like anecdotes or at least learn more about the best-selling holiday plants? If so, you may be interested in a dozen fun facts about buying poinsettia trees and looking around the whole place in December.

Fact 1: Did you know that the main attraction of poinsettia is not its flowers, but its leaves? The flowers of the tree are clustered in the centre with yellow curls (known as “Scythia”). The colored leaf parts are actually bactericidal or modified leaves, which become colored in response to a flowering of plants. When buying Pointsetia, make sure it has buds, not yet open to choice.

Fact 2. The most popular color is Red, accounting for about three-quarters of all sales nationwide, followed by white and pink. More than 100 Pointsetias come in colors ranging from red, salmon and apricot to yellow, cream and white (but not blue – it’s a designer color made with color). New varieties are introduced every year with a mixture of multiple colors or marbles.

Fact 3. How many points do you think will be sold in a year? According to a 2014 report by the USDA Floriculture Crops, Pointsetias accounted for about one-fifth (19 percent) of sales of all flowering plants. Economically, it sold about 35 million pots, representing 6 6,146 million of the 778 million sales of all flowering plants. This makes it the # 1 selling pot flower plant.

Fact 4. Although each state in the United States grows commercially points points, California is the top producer with nearly a million pots, followed by North Carolina with 4.3 million pots, Texas with 3. For ড 3 million, Florida sold 3.2 million points and Ohio 2.9 million points.

Fact 5. Did you know that in nature or in tropical climates poinsettia can reach 12 feet in height with leaves six to eight inches in diameter? It is actually a small tropical tree (Euphorbia pulcherrima) that belongs to the Euphorbia plant family.
