The poinsettia has long been associated with Christmas — we have a red poinsettia like the one above on a coffee table in our living room.

I think I knew there were many varieties of poinsettias, but I didn’t realize that there were so many different colors until Betsy and I visited the Conservatory at Biltmore when we were there for the Christmas at Biltmore event. There were plants of different colors, such as this yellow-green poinsettia which was one of the first we saw as we entered the Conservatory. There were poinsettias of different hues and shades through out the building.

But I think I was most impressed with the multi-colored poinsettias that we saw. This red and white beauty was definitely eye-catching.

Some plants were more subdued than others, but still very pretty. I did like this point and white poinsettia very much.

It would be hard for me to pick a favorite, although these yellow and red plants that we saw near the end of our visit to the Conservatory definitely caught my eye.

    This yellowish-green one is a color I have never seen. The pink & white ones are very pretty, but they tend to look like faded red ones!

    The red and white variety caught my eye.

    THey all look good, but i have to say I am fairly partial to the traditional red ones.

    Amazing to see varieties in poinsettia, and of course, I never thought there could be varieties in it. I have seen only the first kind. Lovely shots and colors!
