DID YOU KNOW...
• We celebrate National Poinsettia Day on December 12 to mark the 1851 death of
Dr. Joel Roberts Poinsett, the botanist who first sent the festive flowers to the U.S. from Mexico.
• When Poinsett first introduced the plant to the U.S. in 1828, most botanists dismissed it as a weed.
• Contrary to popular belief, poinsettias are not poisonous.
AND, in the fall/winter, you can find pointsettias in festive SwirlyBugz pots at events!
Watch for next year's dates!
