Flores de Noche Buena -- Flowers of the Holy Night. Poinsettias grow wild in Mexico, where they can rise to a height of ten feet.
In the fourteenth to sixteenth centuries the Aztecs used them for two purposes. The leaves served as a dye source and the plants' latex as a medicine to control tropical fevers.
Only later in the seventeenth century did the flower take on religious significance. Then Franciscan priests began to display the bright red flower in nativity processions.
