I know – it’s not December – and most people think of poinsettias only during the Christmas season. But I happen to think they are wonderful any time of year. As I was looking at some of the photos I took in December, I found a few more poinsettia photos that I hadn’t shared with you. I thought about waiting until next December to post them. But decided I’d rather share them now – after all won’t some bright red and pink flowers brighten your day any time of year? I know they will brighten up my day.
First are a pair of Ice Crystal Poinsettia photos. Introduced in 2009, Ice Crystal poinsettia has incredible red and white flowers.
Mira Red Poinsettia. Also introduced in 2009, Mira Red is an early blooming poinsettia. In 2010, a white version was introduced.
And finally Ecke Pink Poinsettia. Ecke Pink were introduced in the 1940s and are considered to be the first true pink poinsettia. They were the most popular pink poinsettia up through the late 1960s.
