The Easter Flower, Poinsetia or Pascuero is originally from Mexico and very decorative; not in vain, "pulcherrima" means "the most beautiful". Its colorful bracts are in different colors: red, yellow, salmon, white, etc. I say bracts and not flowers because those "petals" we see are not such but are called botanically bracts. The same thing happens with the Buganvillas, that what we call flowers are actually bracts.
