11/21/2017 Update: Winner of the Ruby Award at Color Dare Challenge #268.
The poinsettia flower is actually the yellow/gold center. The leaves are green, turning color as the plant matures. When I lived in Central Florida I had beautiful poinsettia shrubs in my garden in a variety of colors. They grew beautifully in the humid climate and brightened my yard until the first frost.
