...Poinsettia Day!

The poinsettia is a beautiful plant with a nasty reputation that is not deserved! Previously thought to be poisonous, the poinsettia is actually safe. Although people are not encouraged to eat the plant, it is not harmful to children and animals. Read about the background of this staple of the holiday season at Poinsettia History. Read The Facts About Poinsettia online.Coloring Fun has a printable coloring sheet of the Poinsettia.
