Poinsettias also make great gifts for your family, friends, colleagues and any special person you want to send happy holiday wishes to! For a wonderful holiday surprise, choose to send your Christmas gift with Le Bouquet St-Laurent! This thoughtful gesture will make your loved ones feel very special this Holiday Season!
The most popular Christmas plant around the holidays is the Poinsettia and the colour most in demand with no surprise is traditional Christmas red! Although, if you’re looking for a Poinsettia with a unique colour, ask your favourite Montreal florist to show you the many stunning Poinsettia varieties available in white, green, pink, yellow and even multicoloured! Once you have chosen your favourite colour, ask your trusted florist to decorate it with Christmas greens, pinecones and a planter to really add a festive feel to the holiday decor in your home.
If you are debating adding a beautiful Poinsettia to your home this holiday season because of pets or small children, the fact is, contrary to popular belief Poinsettias are not poisonous at all. Although it is not recommended to ingest their leaves, a very large amount ingested (500 - 600 leaves) might cause slight abdominal discomfort.
Caring for Poinsettias
Although it is important to water your Poinsettias regularly, in order to avoid over-watering them, feel the top of the soil, if it is dry to the touch you may water them again. Keep your Poinsettias healthy by placing them in a direct light source and away from cold drafts of air.
