Poinsettias

I always enjoy visiting Molbak’s Nursery in Woodinville, and over the holidays the poinsettia display was exceptional.    Who would have guessed that the first United States ambassador to Mexico would bring back this lovely plant in 1828?  None other than Joel Roberts Poinsett, who brought cuttings back to his greenhouse in South Carolina.  I really liked these displays, especially the pairings with other plants.  So many plants, so little time!

      Yes, there were some great ideas. I had trouble keeping my poinsettias this year, I think it was too cold, I shouldn’t have put it by the window.
