Southern Gardening: Poinsettias offer color and variety
With their brightly colored bracts full of holiday cheer, poinsettias are truly the quintessential Christmas plant.
The range of available poinsettia colors is truly phenomenal. Red, white, pink, maroon, speckled and marbled are just the tip of the iceberg. Recently, you may have noticed orange and even blue poinsettias with sparkles. Growers use plant dyes to change the bract colors and expand the variety of colors available to consumers.
