The 6th drawing in my floral series is ‘Poinsettia’

Poinsettia was indigenous to Mexico and Central America. It was widely used in Christmas decorations. This plant received its English name from Joel Ponsett, the First US Minister to Mexico, who also introduced the plant to United States.
The flaming red bracts are often mistaken for flowers. These bracts are created when plant go through periods of dark weather; 6-8 weeks at a time. This is called photoperiodism. The actual flowers are tiny yellow flowers found within the false petals.
It had been such a pleasure exploring and creating these beautiful leaves with coloured pencils.
