Peri, a Pointsettia Midi Mars or Euphorbia Pointsettia, is one of the most well-known Christmas holiday plants. Peri provides you with a beautiful way to decorate your home for the holiday's thanks to her festive red color, but that doesn't mean she can't be enjoyed for the rest of the year too!
Native to Mexico, it was first brought to the United States by the first minister to Mexico, Dr. Joel Poinsett.
Did you know, approximately 70 million Poinsettias are sold in a six-week period in the US alone?! Many of these Poinsettias are grown by one family business, which serves half the worldwide market and 70% of the US market.
