Really a different angle to a beautiful flower. We had them when we lived in a warmer climate and they always came out at Christmas time and justified their popular name, Christmas flower. BUT why is it that now I live in a place where Christmas can be very cold indeed the good old Poinsettia blooms for Christmas as well? I could think it was that they were forced to open but there is one in the garden that has smaller flowers than the hothouse ones but it still blooms in December
This image of the centre is fabulous Herman.
