Red, pink, white—poinsettia’s everywhere!

Each year, my mom and grandma go to the greenhouse and pick out a GIANT poinsettia­—which is the official Christmas plant.

Grandma puts hers in the front entrance; and at our house, Mom gives it a special place on the dining room table. 

They’re really nice to look at, but I’d never seen thousands of them all in one place before.

So, last night, I decided to go with them to the greenhouse and pick out our poinsettias. I thought it would be a quick decision—I mean, how many poinsettia’s could there be?


There were poinsettias EVERYWHERE. Red, pink, salmon, white, cream, even speckled and marbled. Some had glitter on them—but of course, I know they didn’t grow that way. Grandma says there are actually 100 natural colours of poinsettias. (Seriously!)

The greenhouse was overflowing, but tomorrow (Dec 12) is INTERNATIONAL POINSETTIA DAY, so I bet most of them will be gone. How many different colours of poinsettias will you see on Sunday?

Gotta Jet! See you next week!
