the joys of the Christmas season or are out of town using a few simple

including the tropical ones these days because of the global
connectivity and quick communication and transportation facilities,
still, Poinsettias and Christmas Roses continue to enjoy a special place
in Christmas celebration because of the beautiful legends that attach
them to this particular festival.
Christmas Rose as the name suggests is deeply associated with the faith, love and devotion to Christ, our Savior. This flower is English in its origin and is believed to bloom in the snow-covered mountains of Central Europe at the time, when the winter is at its prime, often during the Christmas season and thus, deserves to be known as the true Christmas blossom. People also call this white colored flower with pink tipped petals by the name of Snow Rose or Winter Rose as it blooms during the Winter season at the time when all the other greenery bows down under a thick layer of snow.
Bright, flaming red, star-shaped Poinsettias are known as 'Flower of the Holy Night' or 'Flame Leaf' in the United States. One of the most popular flowers in Central America, it was brought here by Dr. Joel Poinsett, the first US ambassador to Mexico, over a hundred years ago. Still most of the supply of this famous beloved Christmas flower in American cities is said to come from California and the folklore attached to it comes from Mexico. Like Christmas Rose, this flower also represents the deep love for Christ and great devotion of a pure innocent human being to baby Jesus.
Christmas Flowers such as Poinsettias and Christmas Roses sweep America and Europe alike during the holiday season. You can use them for holiday decor or can present a floral arrangement as a Christmas Flower gift.
