    Lavae, I lived in Encinitas, Calif. for 33 years before moving to Costa Rica. It is considered the Pointsettia capital of the world because of a man called Paul Ecke. He is the man who developed many different strains of Poinsettias & marketed them worldwide as the official Christmas flower .One of the way’s the Ecke family got them noticed was to send a huge amount of them to Johnny Carson every year for free who would have them on his set for the whole season & tell the world where they came from. As beautiful as many of the varieties that he developed are, I don’t think I’ve ever seen any quite as vibrant & naturally lovely as I have in Costa Rica, something about the depth of the color & the way the light illuminates them is Muy Especial! Feliz Navidad to all my compadres! Enjoy the season & the pointettias!
