The Myth About Poinsettias

Busting the Poisonous Poinsettia Myth

Probably the biggest myth that we at Enchanted Florist and other professional florists face is the myth that poinsettias are poisonous. Well rest assured that they are not in the least bit harmful to you, your children, or your family pets. Poinsettias are the most widely tested consumer plant on the market today, proving the myth about the popular holiday plant to be false. Here are some great statistics to ease your mind:

-Scientific research from The Ohio State University has proved the poinsettia to be non-toxic to both humans and pets. All parts of the plant were tested, including the leaves and sap.

-According to POISINDEX, the national information center for poison control centers, a child would have to ingest 500-600 leaves in order to exceed the experimental doses that found no toxicity.

-A study from the Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University found that out of 22,793 reported poinsettia exposures there was essentially no toxicity significance of any kind. The study used national data collected by the American Association of Poison Control Centers.

Did You Know???

Did you know that the poinsettia has a special day all its own? By an Act of Congress, December 12 was set aside as National Poinsettia Day. The date marks the death of Joel Roberts Poinsett, who is credited with introducing the native Mexican plant to the United States. The purpose of the day is to enjoy the beauty of this popular holiday plant. So, be sure to give someone you love a poinsettia on December 12, National Poinsettia Day! Order Now!

We get in poinsettias of all sizes including red poinsettias, white poinsettias, pink poinsettias, poinsettia trees, small 4" poinsettias, and other sizes including 6", 8", and 10" pot sizes. All some festively decorated with Christmas greenery such as pine and cedar as well as other adornments like Christmas ornaments, angels, bells, or can be customized to your decor!
