Just two weeks ago I shared with you a photo red and yellow pascuas (poinsettias) and I mentioned that poinsettias were native to Guatemala and Mesoamerica. A few days after that, I came across an article in Prensa Libre entitled: (Poinsettias of different colors) in which I learned that, according to industry statistics, Guatemala is the top grower of poinsettias in the world. Guatemala produces 60 million poinsettias which represents 80% of the production in the world. How about that?
