Gardening: Enjoy your poinsettia through Christmas and beyond - Regina Leader-Post
The poinsettia was named after Joel Roberts Poinsett, the first U.S. foreign minister to Mexico. On his return home to South Carolina in 1829, he brought back cuttings of the native poinsettias to grow in his greenhouse. At the turn of the 20th century, Albert Ecke started field cultivation of poinsettias near Los Angeles, Calif., selling dormant plants to his customers. In 1919, Albert's son, Paul Ecke Sr., took over the farm and started selling them as cut flowers at roadside stands in Hollywood and Beverly Hills. By 1963, Paul Ecke Jr. had joined his father in the poinsettia business and developed the first commercial quality poinsettia cultivars grown in pots. Paul Ecke Sr. became known as "The Poinsettia King."When selecting your poinsettia, choose a healthy plant with sturdy branches. Ensure that the true yellow flowers are present. Never purchase one that is displayed with a paper or plastic sleeve around it as plants that have been sleeved too long lose their leaves prematurely.Transporting poinsettias home in the winter can be challenging. Wrap the poinsettia in a paper or plastic sleeve surrounded by newspaper and place it in an inflated, closed plastic bag. The extra air helps insulate it. Take it home in a warm vehicle. Once home, remove the plastic and paper wrapping as soon as possible. Place your poinsettia in an area with bright, filtered light - not direct sunlight. Avoid exposing it to warm or cold drafts. Poinsettias prefer temperatures between 19 and 22 C.Water poinsettias sparingly but thoroughly once the top 1-2 cm of the media is dry. Do not allow them to completely dry out, but never let them sit in water. Allow the excess water to drain from the pot. If you decide to keep your poinsettia as a house plant, fertilize it once a month with a soluble fertilizer low in nitrogen and high in phosphorous.As the days become longer, the new bracts that emerge will be green in colour. To initiate coloured bracts for the next Christmas season, place it in a dark location for a minimum of 12 hours each da... Nov 28, 2018

The Christmas flower - The Hutchinson News
Joel Poinsett. Poinsett, a botanist, was so enchanted by the plant he discovered in Mexico that he sent cuttings back to his home in Charleston, South Carolina in 1828. The rest is, as they say, history. Poinsettia is often capitalized because it is named after a person. Joel Poinsett died on Dec. 12, 1851. To honor him, Dec. 12 is now celebrated as National Poinsettia Day.Poinsett was an intriguing personality. Besides being a first-rate botanist, he excelled in politics and diplomacy. He served in the South Carolina legislature and as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. He also served as an advisor to five consecutive presidents from James Madison to Martin Van Buren in the first half of the 19th century. In his capacity as Secretary of War in the Van Buren administration in 1838, Poinsett presided over the United States Exploring Expedition, the first circumnavigation of the globe sponsored by the U.S. Poinsett insisted that the expedition should collect geological, biological and anthropological specimens. The specimens were displayed at the Patent Office building.Somewhat coincidentally, the U.S. was debating how to best use a $508,318 bequest—about $15 million in today’s money—from a British subject, James Smithson. Joel Poinsett was the first to argue that the money should be used to fund a national museum. Any visitor to the Smithsonian owes Joel Poinsett a big thank you.Joel Poinsett was a man with a prodigious intellect and many accomplishments, yet today, he is best known for being a devoted gardener. And for that, we are especially grateful.Jim Schinstock is a retired teacher. Email: email@example.com
