Bring Others Joy on Poinsettia Day

This holiday season, giving and letting others know they are loved and cared for has become more important than ever. Let's face it, 2020 has been a tough year for just about everyone. And, with continued restrictions through the end of the year, the sense of isolation and loneliness may increase as the typical activities, including parties and large gatherings are discouraged. Now is the time to focus on bringing others joy, which, in the process of doing so, can also add joy to your own life. A good place to start is this Saturday, December 12th. That's Poinsettia Day, a day that became a national event in 2002 when Congress made it official. However, poinsettia plants have been spreading joy for a lot longer. Dating back to the 1300s, the poinsettia plant has been used for various purposes, including its dye properties. In more modern times, the poinsettia plant has become a favorite symbol of Christmas with bright red blooms or crisp white blooms. There are over 100 varieties of poinsettia plants to choose from, although you typically only see just a few color choices. Our Rochester flower shop and florist locations around the Finger Lakes are your source for fresh poinsettia plants to decorate your own home and, more importantly, to gift to others. Many people may skip buying a poinsettia plant and choose to decorate other ways, which is why it makes such a great gift.

It's a versatile gift, working for just about anyone, including teachers, neighbors, service personnel, friends, clients, colleagues, and more.Ā  We offer single and double poinsettia plants in a few colors.

Celebrating Poinsettia Day in Rochester

Poinsettia Day on Wednesday, December 12th is the perfect opportunity to start decorating your home or office for a more festive look. It's also a wonderful and thoughtful early Christmas gift for friends, family, service personnel, clients, or colleagues. Our Rochester flower shop is filled to the brim with Christmas plants, including poinsettias. We offer poinsettias in red, white, and mixed, depending on availability. You can also choose from available containers to display them in. Also, we can create basket arrangements that include poinsettias along with other seasonal greenery and blooming plants for a special Christmas gift. Be sure to place your order today through our Rochester flower shop or our website. What makes poinsettias so great besides being known as a symbol of Christmas is their long-lasting display and ease of care. With just a little attention, poinsettias can last many years and continue re-blooming each holiday season. Once you get a poinsettia plant, be sure to place it in direct sunlight. This is a tropical plant that enjoys sunlight, warmth, and humidity. Also, it's important to maintain moist soil for the poinsettia plant. After the holidays, the plant can continue to live indoors until the summertime where it can be moved outdoors. Come fall, the poinsettia plant will need periods of darkness to slow its blooming cycle. Then, along with fertilizer and a return to sunlight, it will be ready to bloom again.
