Do you know the Christmas story associated with this magnificent plant?
“ Mexican religious history tells that a young girl, named Pépita, walked sadly to church on Christmas Eve. Since she was poor, she thought she had nothing to offer like offering to the church. A wise man passing by tried to console her by telling her that even the humblest gift, given with love, would be greatly appreciated. So Pépita went to pick a bunch of leaves from a common and unattractive shrub that grew along the road. While placing her bouquet at the church, a miracle happened. To the great astonishment of all participants. The ordinary green leaves transformed into intense red bracts. Since this event, all wild poinsettias are adorned with flamboyant colors during Christmas time. »
