Flower of the Day – Purple Poinsettia


Flower of the Day – Purple Poinsettia


These are really unusual and pretty. I read that the grower sprays dye on a light colored Poinsettia, shortly before shipping. As the plant ages, the colored bracts fall off and the plant will be in original color that it started out as.

    • Thanks! They are different looking, for sure. I’m surprised the dye doesn’t hurt the plant, but I guess the growers know what they are doing.
      Wishing you a lovely Tuesday! ❤
