Poinsettia
Euphorbia pulcherrima - Crown of the Andes

THE Christmas plant. Defining the festive season as much as a daffodil does spring, this native of Mexico was used by the Aztecs to control fevers and dye cloth. The botanical name pulcherrima means "very beautiful", and it is!

Site: A Bright spot away from heat and cold.
Tip: Pinch out the flowers (Bracts) after the red leaves begin to fall

Chlorophytum orchidastrum
Green and orange

Brilliant festive and seasonal colours on this uncommon house plant. This plant is related to the spider plant, Chlorophytum comosum. The word Chlorophytum is from the Greek chloros meaning green and phuton for plant. We think that the bright colouration makes it a fantastic christmas plant to have in the house.

Site: Any shady spot but do not expose to bright light or the colour will fade.
Tip: It will try to flower, pinch these out ASAP. We find it helps to keep the plant looking good.
