The common name of the poinsettia (pronounced poyn-SET-ee-ah), comes the last name of Joel Poinsett, the first U.S. ambassador to México, who brought the first poinsettias to the U.S. in 1825. Native to Mexico, the plant's botanical name is Euphorbia pulcherrima, which means "most beautiful euphorbia."
