Poinsettia Ice Punch 1 Plant

Poinsettia Ice Punch 1 Plant £12.95
One of the most traditional of Christmas pot plants, the reputation of the Poinsettia has been damaged in recent years by poor quality foreign imports. Our plants, having started life back in July this year, come to you as English grown plants which are nicely toned for the typical British household. A member of the Euphorbia family, Poinsettia it is a native of Mexico; the plants have strong stems and large bracts (leaves) that cover the plant in a mass of colour. With an upright and bushy habit, the bracts are complemented by the berry-like flowers: called a cyathia it’s in the centre of the bract and is normally yellow.The plants will come in a 15cm (6″) pot that’s perfect as a pot plant. The bracts will be coloured on delivery right through and beyond Christmas and long into the New Year if looked after well. So don’t be fooled by inferior plants from your local garage, get a superior Ponisettia that comes with the Dobies guarantee of quality.Ice Punch – red with flecked white centres on dark green foliage. Did you know that Poinsettia Day is on December 12th? It was declared in honour of the death of Joel Roberts Poinsett, whom the plant is named after.
