How the Poinsettia Became the Official Plant of Christmas

The beautiful red and green plant we all recognize today as the Poinsettia has a long, foreign, and interesting history. Though many Christmas plants and other flowers are associated with the American Christmas holiday, the beloved Poinsettia has some deep historical roots that might really surprise you.

The lovely plant you place in your home every December was used at one time as a cure for fevers. Poinsettias are a Central America native, the plant flourished in areas of Southern Mexico long before Christianity came to the Western Hemisphere. The ancient Aztecs found it blooming in the tropical highlands during the very short days of winter and named it “Cuetlaxochitl.” That plant was not all that decorative at the time. The Aztecs used the plant for practical purposes, as they did with many elements of nature. They extracted purple dye from it for use in cosmetics and used the latex-like material of the plant to tribesmen with fevers.
