Poinsettias don't actually have flowers, but bracts. These are the impressive cream, salmon pink or red foliage with small yellow flower buds in the centre. Whatever you call them, they're definitely beautiful!
The poinsettia in a vase
With a couple of poinsettias in different colours, a couple of small vases and a tray, you can transform these flamboyant houseplants into a beautiful still-life. Cut the bracts off the plant, perhaps each colour in a different length, place them in the vases and then put them together on a tray. What a lovely display!
