Stop Calling It Poinsettia

from  Xicano Renegades

The poinsettia  (Euphorbia pulcherrima) is a commercially important plant species of the diverse spurge family (Euphorbiaceae). Indigenous to Mexico and Central America. The Red and Green are foliage. The flower is the small center of the plant.

Thanks to Floyd Brown who made me aware of the true origins of the plant.
