first_img Recently, hybridizers have developed poinsettias in not only traditional reds, but two-toned red and white, pink and white, speckled, dark-almost-black burgundy, blush pink and white. And with a new line of bronze/gold tones, poinsettias are perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving and and the yuletide. In the future, don’t be surprised to see poinsettias in “fantasy colors.” The Fred C. Gloeckner Co. in Harrison, N.Y., has held trials on the East Coast using a dye that doesn’t harm the plants. Results showed that bright blue poinsettias were favored by customers three to one over the other colors. Stay tuned. And when thinking of purchasing a poinsettia for your holiday, don’t buy into the long-held rumor that they are poisonous. They are not. The rumor has persisted since 1919, when a 2-year old child of an Army officer stationed in Hawaii died of poisoning, and the cause was incorrectly assumed to be a poinsettia leaf. While many species in the genus Euphorbia are highly toxic, poinsettia is not among them. [email protected] local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Many traditional accessories to the holiday season come from far-flung places around the world. Poinsettias, for example, had their roots in an Aztec folk story. St. Nicholas originated in Northern Europe. And the three wise men’s gifts to the baby Jesus of gold, frankincense and myrrh go back to biblical days in the Middle East. While we all know what gold is, it may be surprising to learn that frankincense and myrrh actually came from ancient plants. Myrrh is an aromatic gum resin obtained from trees and shrubs of the genus commiphora of India, Arabia and Eastern Africa. It is used in perfume and incense. Likewise, frankincense is a dried tree sap, or resin, obtained from African and Asian trees of the genus Boswellia and also are used in incense and perfumes. Poinsettias have come a long way since the Aztecs called them Cuetlaxochitl as far back as the 14th century, when their sap was used to control fevers and their bracts were used to make a reddish dye. Montezuma, the last of the Aztec kings, would have poinsettias brought by caravans into what is now Mexico City, because poinsettias could not be grown in the high altitude. The poinsettia was introduced to the United States by Joel Roberts Poinsett, a congressman and U.S. ambassador to Mexico appointed by John Quincy Adams in the 1820s. Poinsett was a plantsman, and while in Mexico he wandered the countryside in search of exotic species. In 1828, he found the shrub with large red flowers, took cuttings and brought them back to his South Carolina greenhouse. The poinsettia is a member of the euphorbia family (euphorbia pulcherrima) known for its milky sap. By the 1900s, the Ecke family, now in Encinitas, became the leading hybridizer, creating wonderful varieties. The poinsettia became a symbol of Christmas as a result of the Aztec legend of two poor Mexican children who had no gift to lay by the manger of the Christ child. Instead, they gathered a bucket of weeds and upon presenting their humble gift, the weeds burst forth in lovely red, starlike flowers. The real color from the poinsettia comes from bracts, which are modified leaves. The true flowers (called cyathia) are small, yellow and round, and are in the center of the bracts. If a poinsettia is losing (or has lost) its cyathia, it is beyond its prime. last_img read more
