BEAUTIFUL POINSETTIAS

BEAUTIFUL POINSETTIAS - flowers, blossoms, beautiful, red, botany, leaves
Flag This WallpaperAdd to FavoritesEnlarge Wallpaper
Wallpaper Description:
The Aztecs called poinsettias "Cuetlaxochitl." During the 14th - 16th century the sap was used to control fevers and the bracts (modified leaves) were used to make a reddish dye.
# Montezuma, the last of the Aztec kings, would have poinsettias brought into what now is Mexico City by caravans because poinsettias could not be grown in the high altitude.
# In the 17th century, Juan Balme, a botanist, noted the poinsettia plant in his writings.
# The botanical name, Euphorbia pulcherrima, was assigned to the poinsettia by the German botanist, Wilenow. The plant grew through a crack in his greenhouse. Dazzled by its color, he gave it the botanical name, Euphorbia pulcherrima meaning "very beautiful."
