8 thoughts on “FOTD 5th August 2019: Poinsettia

  1. We studied this in school quite a bit. It has such an odd but brief history. Most blooming potted plants were popularized in Europe a long time ago. Poinsettia was popularized in Hollywood less than a century ago. Most poinsettias were grown in northern San Diego County for many decades. I met Paul Ecke Junior, the son of Paul Ecke Senior when I was in school. His father (Senior) started popularized poinsettias. My colleagues were trying to make a good impression with Mr. Ecke because they wanted to work for him. He liked me because I was the most genuine of the bunch; and I did not want to work for him.
