Getting To Know Your Poinsettia

With star-shaped leaf bracts, poinsettias have become known as Christmas Stars in many other languages, including Stella di Natale in Italian and Weihnachtsstern in German. 

The large colourful bracts of the poinsettia are often mistaken for flower petals, but they are in fact leaves. The flowers are actually the tiny yellow berry-like structures at the centre of each leaf bract, which are called cyathia.
