There is no Christmas without a Poinsettia! This plant is beautiful and is one of the Christmas flowers the deep red of the traditional flower is a wonderful color. I guess at this time of the year this plant is used to decorate indoor and outdoor pretty much everywhere around the world! I have been drawing poinsettia since I was a child, creating hand drawing Christmas cards for my sweet mom and family! No matter if is a real plant a drawing or anything that represent this red flower, just the presence in the house enhance the feeling of the holidays.
