Joel Roberts Poinsett was the first Ambassador from the USA to Mexico. He had poinsettias in his greenhouses and sent them to his friends as presents.

A legend tells that there was once a poor Mexican girl called Pepita (or Maria) who was too poor to give a gift for the celebration of Jesus' birthday. She was inspired by an angel to gather weeds from the roadside and place them in front of the church altar. Suddenly the crimson blossoms sprouted from the weeds and became beautiful red poinsettias. It was a miracle. From that day on, the flowers were known as the Flores de Noche Buena (Flowers of the Holy Night).
