    The poinsettia plant is native to regions in southern Mexico and northern Guatemala, where it has historically been used by indigenous peoples for medical, decorative and sacred purposes. However, this often-admired plant has been taken from its natural region and grown worldwide. A couple hundred years ago, it was noticed by outsiders and became a coveted plant for Europeans and Americans. Horticulturists and other scientists began working to produce new varieties, and currently, poinsettias are cultivated around the globe, particularly in South America. Wild poinsettias grow in bush form and bloom red in December; nowadays, the cultivated, potted types are found in a range of colors with a variety of leaf and bract patterns.
