"So happy, happy, I remember beneath the poinsettia's red in warm December."
Claude McKay, "Flame Heart"

The poinsettia's color comes not from its flowers, which are small and yellow, but from its brilliant red leaves or bracts. A native of Mexico, it was named for Joel Poinsett, the first U.S. ambassador to Mexico. Its botanical name, Euphorbia pulcherrima, means beautiful euphorbia. Claude McKay, a key figure in the Harlem Renaissance, came to the U.S. in 1912 from Jamaica, where the poinsettia is also called flame-leaf.
