Poinsettia

The Lalbagh Botanical Garden, Bangalore the Garden City is a lush green paradise with an area of 240 acres in the heart of the city. 



Recently I had been to Lalbagh with guests. As they were the plant lovers they wanted to check out the nursery. Since, it was the December month we could see the Poinsettia the Christmas Flower.




In Mexico, it is also known as the "Flower of Holy Night".

Hi Raj,
questi sono fiori che in Italia li troviamo ovunque nei negozi, nel periodo natalizio.
Peccato che dopo un pò muoiono !
Bella pianta.
Buona giornata.
Myriam :))
