Poinsettias for Every Decor!

'Dulce Rosa' is one of the newest poinsettia varieties to hit the market, with bright pink long lasting flowers. If you're in the mood for something more traditional this holiday season there are plenty of classic reds available as well!

With over 100 different varieties of poinsettias available today in a diversity of colors including white, pink, rose, coral, salmon, and every tint of red, crimson, and scarlet imaginable, it should not be difficult to find the perfect one to match any home d├ęcor or holiday theme. One new variety, known as Dulce Rosa, has flowers described as fluorescent pink! Variety does not stop just with color either. Poinsettias can be found with leaves edged and frosted in white and with petal-like bracts that are marbled, dusted, or splashed in multiple colors. There is even a series known as ‘Winter Rose’ whose bracts are pleated and incurved so that they actually do resemble rose flowers. Whether you stick with a traditional red variety this Christmas or try one of the newer color creations, the following quick tips will help you get the most out of your poinsettia this holiday season.
