Red poinsettias, pink poinsettias, purple poinsettias: it’s quite clear these aren’t your grandmother’s drug-store poinsettias. Shake up her world a bit with a 'Peppermint Twist'
thrown into the mix, along with her favorite red and some assorted evergreens. While you’re at it, shake up the world just outside -- or on -- your door. Like on your porch, patio, balcony, in a planter bed, or containers for those who reside in warmer climates –- you know who you are.
These Mexican natives attract a different kind of attention than, say, the inflatable Christmas decorations like the ones two doors down. Whatever the color, shape or size, poinsettias brighten your world at Christmas and during the winter holidays. They bring a natural beauty to your outdoor decor -- a less glitzy and more breathtaking visual display. Enjoy the design combinations and decorating ideas in this poinsettia slide show.
