A Poinsettia is well-known for its bright red and green foliage which are two colours associated with Christmas- hence why it is commonly used for decoration in December! Poinsettia’s have a beautiful shape and appear very welcoming and uplifting in your home.

Positioning the indoor plant is easy because they look fantastic in any location. You could simply place a few Poinsettia’s in a vase in the middle of your coffee table, or place them in your doorway to welcome guests into your home.

Alternatively, you can add brightness and colour to your stairway for example by placing Poinsettia’s along your garland or wreath! The red is guaranteed to stand-out next to the green foliage.
