What's your favorite color of poinsettia? Mine is pink or white. My favorite job was when I worked at the greenhouse and flower shop which I did for 7 years. When I worked there we handled thousands and thousands of poinsettias - red ones. When they began growing pink, white and peppermint it was such a refreshing change. I still feel the freshness of those new colors. We usually have a disagreement in our family. Leonard loves the red - red is Christmas to him. We usually compromise and buy two.
