I received this product from lively root for review. It has always been a tradition for me to give my Mom a poinsettia or 2 every year at Christmas time. Unfortunately, I now live many miles away from her and have not been able to carry on that tradition for a few years. Until I found lively root.
Lively root offers a large selection of plants, but when I saw the Abundant Red Holiday Poinsettia (regularly priced at $50, currently on sale for $30), I just had to send it to my Mom. The plant will fill your home with vibrant Christmas color! And it's so easy to send a plant from lively root as a gift! Just choose the one you want and place your order. They will pack up and send the plant straight from their nursery in San Diego to anywhere nationwide that you need it sent! It's such a quick and easy way to send gifts to loved ones, especially if they live far away!
The poinsettia is a traditional Christmas plant that was brought back from Taco, Mexico by the first US Ambassador to Mexico, Joel Poinsett. He started growing them in South Carolina and he would pass them along to friends and botanical gardens nearby. One of those friends, Robert Buist, was a Pennsylvania plantsman - and he started reproducing them as cut flowers. Poinsettias are associated with Christmas because the "flowers" (which are really leaves called "bracts" that turn color as the days get shorter during the fall and winter months) bloom during the holiday season.
Send some one you love a poinsettia this year... they'll love it!
