“Ice Punch” is the name of this poinsettia variety. I decorated for Christmas using 3 big poinsettia plants this year–no tree!
Don’t you just love poinsettias? I decided to decorate using just some big poinsettia plants this year instead of stressing about whether to get a potted tree or a fake one. These new varieties, “Ice Punch” and “Red Glitter” add a little change of pace to the normal scarlet velvet of the classic plant.
This harlequin poinsettia is called “Red Glitter.” The general class of multi-colored poinsettias is known as “jingle bell” poinsettias by nurserymen and marketers.
Hope you have a wonderful week celebrating Christmas and all the winter holidays!
