Poinsettias are well known as the Christmas plant for their striking red leaves. In Colombia, these plants flourish mainly in the San Antonio del Tequendama, La Mesa, and Fusagasug√°, areas located in the Department of Cundinamarca that stand out for their unparalleled production conditions. Colviveros estimates that this region produces more than half a million poinsettias to meet the increasing domestic demand during the season that covers mainly the months of November and December.

The new ornamental trade association in Colombia will initiate a promotional campaign of poinsettias in the main population centers oriented to stimulate a bigger consumption of the Christmas plant by the end consumers.
