"I'd like a share a very nice web page on Poinsettias put out by the University of Illinois Extension. You can visit it at: http://www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/poinsettia/ The site contains such information as History and Legend, Poinsettia Facts, Poinsettia Care, and more. Of particular interest to me was the fact that Poinsettia are not poisonous as we have all been led to believe over the years. An Ohio State University study is sited in the Poinsettia Facts section."
