This striking plant is native to Mexico but brings a festive touch into the house. The Poinsettia is one of the most common plants people use to decorate their homes during the festive period giving a gorgeous splash of colour to the home. The large star shaped blooms may look like petals but are actually coloured leaves. With the right care, this means that you can enjoy the bright colours for longer as they are not as delicate as petals.
