Though the poinsettia is usually associated with winter holidays — especially Christmas — it’s actually a tropical plant that hails from Mexico. Poinsettias are sturdy and require little care, though they do thrive in direct sunlight. With even watering, they can last for several months. But not all flower shops offer poinsettias, so here is a list of a few in the Philadelphia area that have been in business the longest and offer the best variety.
