Enjoy your holiday season, whatever you celebrate.

Here is a Poinsettia, they are known around the holiday season because of the red and green foliage, making them popular for Christmas. They are considered a shrub tree. The red are actually leaves, not petals. The red develops through photoperiodism, which consists of darkness for 14 hours at a time for about 8 weeks in a row. They do need sunlight during the day to develop their bright colors.
